Sampdoria handed over to Giampaolo on Wednesday

by | Jan 18, 2022 22:41

Sampdoria caretaker manager Felice Tufano confirmed Marco Giampaolo is ready to start work tomorrow, but thanks the club for the opportunity to lead his team in the Coppa Italia against Juventus.

Roberto D’Aversa was fired yesterday, so youth team coach Tufano and member of staff Angelo Palombo took charge at the Allianz Juventus Stadium in Turin this evening.

It ended 4-1 for the hosts, with Juan Cuadrado’s free kick, a Daniele Rugani header, Paulo Dybala strike and Alvaro Morata penalty.

Andrea Conti had scored for Samp, with Kristoffer Askildsen threatening to make it 2-2 at one stage.

“We had a pretty clear chance after our goal that could’ve put the game on a very different track, despite Juventus largely dominating the match,” Tufano said in his press conference.

“We tried our best, the lads worked hard and I thank them. In football a match can change with an incident, but unfortunately the third Juve goal knocked the wind out of our sails.

“On a personal level, it was a magnificent evening and I thank the club for giving me this opportunity. From tomorrow, I go back to my lads in the youth team, knowing I had an unforgettable night.”

Giampaolo will step in from tomorrow to take the Sampdoria job, as he first had to terminate his contract with Torino.

“We have to view the situation with optimism and not pessimism. From tomorrow the coach will dive in and start preparing the match with Spezia. We’ve got to roll our sleeves up and improve, seeking the results that have not arrived recently.”
