Enzo Maresca is excited about his move to Sampdoria.

The midfielder arrived from Malaga for an undisclosed fee on Thursday and could well start tomorrow night's match with Siena.

"My desire from the start was to begin this adventure. I can't wait to get started and to put myself at the disposal of the Coach and my teammates," said the man who'll wear the Number 6 jersey.

"I am happy to be here and watched Sampdoria's win over Milan last week. The team got off to a great start, as not everyone can win at San Siro.

"There are many young and talented players here, especially in midfield. My years abroad have helped me to grow and I will try to bring that experience to the others."
