Ferrero insists he's not the one holding up the sale.

"I called it a song and dance, because if I want to buy a club, a price is agreed, it is paid and the paperwork exchanged," Ferrero told Rai Due.

Anyone who knows about football gives their value to Sampdoria. When I arrived here, the Primavera youth team was playing 80km away, there was no home stadium for them, but I created Sampdoria Next Generations, a football school introducing kids to Samp.

I don't know how much they are offering me, because I haven't heard from anyone and there are no negotiations. If Vialli wants Sampdoria, he should come here and make an offer. You've got to stop attacking me about this.

If they give me the money Sampdoria is worth, then I will walk away. If not, I'm staying here, as Samp is in my heart and I am not afraid of anything.

I work for Samp from morning until night. Vialli is a legend for Samp, I know that, but let's try to make sense of the whole thing."

<![CDATA[Di Francesco praises Sampdoria players in defeat to Napoli]]> <p>Sampdoria coach Eusebio Di Francesco praised his players in defeat to Napoli.</p><p>The Blucerchiati have for the fifth time in their history started a Serie A campaign with three consecutive defeats.</p><a href='https://www.tribalfootball.com/articles/di-francesco-praises-sampdoria-players-in-defeat-to-napoli-4296782?utm_source%3Dmediafed%26utm_medium%3Drss-feed%26utm_campaign%3DFeed-Latest%2BArticles%2Bfor%2BSampdoria'>Read more on Tribal Football</a> Sampdoria coach Eusebio Di Francesco praised his players in defeat to Napoli.

The Blucerchiati have for the fifth time in their history started a Serie A campaign with three consecutive defeats.

But Di Francesco says, After leaking so many goals, we decided to change our approach to ensure more coverage and be less open to attack.

We did well in the first half-hour, then had our chances to equalise after the opening goal. We were up against a very strong Napoli side, so it's only natural they'd create problems for us. Unfortunately, after the break we had good opportunities and the final ball was often not the right choice.

When you come off so many negative results, that is going to affect your confidence. Emiliano Rigoni had a big chance to equalise and that could've changed the match, but we're just not lucky at the moment.

I do think it was the best Sampdoria performance of the season so far. We are only at the start of the campaign, I know what this team can do and am sure we can do much better.

I just hope we start picking up some points from the next game to help with their self-esteem."

Dries Mertens scored twice for the 2-0 win.

"We put in a good performance, especially early on, even if we were more efficient and effective in the second half, without just enjoying the possession for no reason. The newcomers and those who came off the bench also did well," Ancelotti told Sky Sport Italia.

We kept a clean sheet, so at least that was a sigh of relief. We didn't lose balance so much as gave the ball away a few too many times and too cheaply.

We've chosen this approach, which involves taking a few more risks, but we believe it to be worthwhile. We just have to make fewer mistakes with our passing."

Ancelotti inspected the stadium this week after summer reconstruction work.

He blasted: I saw the conditions of the San Paolo dressing rooms. I am speechless. I accepted the club's request to play the first two games of the season away from home so that the work could be completed, as promised.

You can build a house in two months and they were unable to refurbish the dressing rooms! Where are we supposed to change for the games against Sampdoria and Liverpool?

I am outraged by the inadequacy and unprofessionalism of those who had to carry out this work. How could the Region, Municipality and Commissioners disregard the commitments they made to us?

I see contempt and a lack of care for the team, club and the city. I am dismayed."

The Swede moved to France this summer from Sampdoria.

Speaking to Foot Mercato, Andersen admitted that although Arsenal were an interesting proposition, Lyon in the end made the most tempting offer.

"There were good clubs, but Lyon was the best choice for me," he said.

"I wanted to develop as a player, play the Champions League, be in a top team that fights for the title and Lyon was the best solution."

The Sun says the Gunners could even allow the struggling German to go out on loan just to get his 80,000-a-week salary off their wage bill.

Manager Unai Emery has told Mustafi that he does not have a future at the Emirates and needs to restart his career with another club.

The 27-year-old centre-half cost 35million when he was signed from Valencia three years but could now be sold for as little as 15m.

A number of Italian clubs have been alerted to Mustafi's availability, with AC Milan, Lazio and Sampdoria all regarded as potential purchasers.

But he could also be offered on loan to Turkish giants Fenerbahce and Galatasaray with a view to a cut-price permanent move next summer.
