Sampdoria sacks its coach after a string of defeats
12.02 pm: Italian soccer club Sampdoria sacked coach Roberto Daversa after six months. D’Aversa, 46, has to leave due to a disappointing performance. Sampdoria’s last league win dates back to December 10.
Genoa have lost their last three games and are just above the relegation zone in Serie A with 20 points from 22 games, behind Daversa Claudio Ranieri last summer in the previous Italian league.
Sampdoria finished ninth in Italy’s top league last season under Ranieri. The 70-year-old Italian now works in England as a coach at Watford.
In Sampdoria, Daversa was able to reach Mehmet Ihtarine, among others, who was captured by Juventus from Eindhoven and subsequently stationed in Genoa. However, 19-year-old Utrechter did not get any time to play for Sampdoria and decided to leave Italy in the fall. Ihattaren is training for himself at the moment. FC Utrecht is interested in taking over the attacking midfielder on a lease basis from Juventus. Last week, Sampdoria’s management were furious over an interview given by Hahtarin in De Telegraaf, in which he said no one at the club would sponsor him.
Remarkably, both clubs from Genoa fired their coach within a few days. Andrei Shevchenko left Genoa on Saturday after disappointing results.
