Sabatini confirms quitting Sampdoria after Ferrero bust-up

Walter Sabatini has quit Sampdoria as technical director.

Sabatini says he resigned following a row with president Massimo Ferrero after defeat to Bologna.

“With great regret, I confirm that I have resigned," Sabatini told Sky Sport Italia.

Sabatini and Ferrero almost came to blows, it is alleged, as the president turned on the players in the dressing room.

“There was a disagreement at the end of the game and when an employee has a disagreement like that with his employer, it is only right that he resign.

“Therefore, I leave with great disappointment, because I really care for this team. There will be no reconsideration."
