Having parted ways with coach Ranieri, despite a positive top 10 finish, last season Sampdoria opted for D’Aversa, coming off a negative experience at Parma, where he had otherwise done wonders. They never managed to hit it off with the new coach and they even found themselves falling dangerously close to the relegation zone by the turn of the new year. Thus, D’Aversa was shown the door and in came Marco Giampaolo, who had led the team to the top 10 in 3 consecutive seasons between 2016 and 2019. Things did not improve much but they pulled 5 decisive wins in the last 16 fixtures, eventually achieving salvation. Coach Giampaolo was confirmed at the helm of the team for the new season but, if nothing changes, he might have to be working with a slightly weakened squad. In fact, over the summer Sampdoria saw Sensi, who should have become a leader in the middle of the park but never made it due to injuries, returning to his parent club, while centre-back Yoshida, who was not given much playing time under Giampaolo and holding midfielder Ekdal left for pastures new. Thorsby, another leader in the midfield, was sold to Union Berlin while promising Askildsen was loaned out. And even back-up goalie Falcone was loaned out. Moreover, forwards Giovinco and Supryaha, who failed to impose themselves due to injuries, also left. Apart from signing free agent Djuricic, who could represent an alternative to Sabiri in terms of offensive creativity, Sampdoria limited themselves to signing permanently Sabiri, Caputo and Rincon. Not much, considering how bad they were at times last season. Sampdoria are still looking for players in every area, a centre-back, a central midfielder and a scoring alternative to Caputo and soon-to-be 40-year-old Quagliarella above all.

Target


If they fail to strengthen the squad sometime soon, Sampdoria could be heavily involved in the fight for survival.

Season Review
2020/2021

№9: Sampdoria

Ranieri is a serious coach and he usually gets the best out of the squads he is given and this season was no execption. After leading Sampdoria to safety in the second half of the past campaign, he was confirmed at the helm with an almost untouched squad. In fact, midfielder Linetty left but was adequately replaced by promising Adrien Silva. Sampdoria started the season with back-to-back defeats, to Juventus and neo-promoted Benevento respectively, but they immediately reacted and brought home 3 consecutive wins and a draw, reaching the top 6 in week 6. After that, their path became utterly inconsistent as they only managed to obtain more than 2 wins in a row again in the final weeks of the campaign. Between weeks 7 and 30, they were just unpredictable and would prove capable of outstanding results as the 2-1 win over Inter in week 16 or a disappointing 1-3 defeat to Bologna in week 28. Whatever the results, Ranieri kept repeating that they aimed at reaching 52 points and he eventually proved right, as Sampdoria won 5 of the last 8, closing the season on a high, making 9th spot, with back-to-back wins over Udinese and Parma. Sampdoria did not excel in any department and broke no records, they were just the perfect image of averageness, which is typical of Ranieri. At 38, captain Quagliarella was once again the top scorer of the team, with 13 goals, while inconsistent Keita and too-often injured Gabbiadini proved rather disappointing up-front. Candreva, who at some point looked on the verge of quitting the club, scored 5 and provided 8 assists. However, Yoshida, at the back, produced several remarkable performances while Adrien Silva left the mark whenever he was on the pitch. Since Ranieri delivers what he promises, he was not deemed suitable for another season at Sampdoria. Not many coaches are capable of doing better than him with this kind of squad, though.
