Sampdoria president Riccardo Garrone admits they're keen on sacked Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini.

The former Italy international spent 15 years with the Genoa-based club during his play days - helping them to the 1992 European Cup final.

"Roberto Mancini as the new Sampdoria is something from a dream world," Garrone told Ansa.

"Dreaming is not wrong, but it still remains a dream.

"For my part, the Sampdoria coach for next season will still be Delio Rossi and I think we'll arrange a new contract with him very soon."
