Sampdoria coach Ciro Ferrara has shrugged off their defeat to Napoli.

The Blucerchiati tactician has remained positive, saying he is 'proud' to manage the team.

"The team has been giving excellent performances throughout the season," he told Radio Anchio Sport. "I'm proud to be coaching these guys.

"My team is, on average, the youngest in Serie A, so the fact that they are competing in this league can only make me happy.

"Having won 10 points already is something that confirms the merits of this team."
