Sampdoria president Edoardo Garrone insists coach Delio Rossi is safe.
Rossi is under huge pressure with Samp having collected just two points this season.
"We are going through a bad time but we all have to raise our levels," he told Sky Sport Italia.
"The Coach is a big part of Sampdoria and we have never thought about getting rid of him.
"I'm sure Delio Rossi is the right man for this team and the right man to achieve the results we want."
