Delio Rossi is delighted to have been offered the Sampdoria post.
Rossi has replaced Ciro Ferrara, who was fired on Monday.
âI was paired with Sampdoria yesterday and I immediately said yes,â he explained at his unveiling.
âHowever, I want to say a few words to Ferrara. I know what it means to be unable to finish a job. I donât know him personally, but Iâm close to him today.â
The Italian returns to the bench after his spectacular dismissal at Fiorentina last season which followed a touchline brawl with midfielder Adem Ljajic.
âThat story is over, Iâve already said sorry to everybody,â he continued. âFor me, Florence remains a beautiful memory.â
