Sampdoria have already earned Serie A survival ahead of the final game of the season against Inter.
The Nerazzurri must beat the Blucerchiati and hope Milan lose away at Sassuolo to retain the Serie A title. Giampaolo, a former Milan coach, released an interview with Il Giornale, discussing the upcoming Serie A fixture at the Stadio Meazza.
“My rapport with Milan has nothing to do with the present. I am at Sampdoria now and Milan are doing their part. It [coaching Milan] wasn’t a real opportunity for me, I didn’t have enough time there,” he said.
“Venezia collected a point against Roma despite being relegated already. We beat Fiorentina, who were fighting for Europe. This season’s results prove that games must be played. Nothing should to be taken for granted because nobody likes to make a bad impression. Games are to be played and England is a reference point in this aspect.”
