Sampdoria president Riccardo Garrone is excited about their imminent Champions League campaign.

Samp finished the Serie A campaign in fourth place and will therefore go through the preliminary round in August.

“There is extraordinary enthusiasm for the Champions League and we all can’t wait for this new adventure to begin,” said President Garrone.

“There are still celebrations and I try to be present at all the official fan gatherings I can, because these are moments of immense joy.

“It’s nice to see that in this period the number of young Samp fans is hitting a peak.

“We hope that luck will be on our side in the draw, but I do not have the experience or patience to watch all the games of the teams we may or may not be facing.”
