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