Sampdoria coach Delio Rossi was asked about Genoa's spying before yesterday's dismal derby defeat.

Samp caught Genoa youth team goalkeeping coach Luca De Prà hiding in the bushes to spy on their training session dressed in full camouflage gear before the game.

“I am sure someone sent him, as he hardly went of his own volition,” said Rossi, scoffing at Genoa’s claim it was ‘personal initiative.’

“I actually felt pity for him, as the poor thing said he was ‘just working’ when we caught him. Anyway, that whole affair had absolutely nothing to do with this result.”
