Sampdoria coach Ranieri explains guard of honour for champions Inter Milan

Sampdoria coach Claudio Ranieri explained their guard of honour for champions Inter Milan before Saturday's 5-1 thrashing.

It was Ranieri's idea, having taken the tradition from his time in England.

“I told Quagliarella and the lads it would be good to mark the occasion the way they do in England, and they immediately agreed with me.

“This is sport. I believe sport should be in these tiny gestures, especially for a team that won with four rounds to spare. We had it at Leicester, receiving the guard of honour at Chelsea in the next game."
