Sampdoria patron Edoardo Garrone apologised to fans after their relegation.
â€śI never wanted to be here making this statement,â€ť said Garrone â€“ the son of President Riccardo â€“ in the Press room.
â€śIt is such a sad moment and the fans do not deserve it. I am not here to comment on the game, as we must instead look at the overall â€“ terrible â€“ campaign.
â€śA series of errors were made and they have to be recognised. We take responsibility, but also reaffirm our commitment to Sampdoria, which remains unchanged.
â€śIt is time to clean out the house and rebuild a team that can get back into Serie A as soon as possible.
â€śAfter so many years of great satisfaction at Sampdoria, this season ends with terrible disappointment.â€ť
