The Sampdoria fans have urged his dismissal, but Domenico Di Carlo is confident. “I feel the club has faith in me.”
The Blucerchiati are sliding down the standings after Saturday's 2-0 defeat to Udinese, having lost three on the trot and failed to score for the fifth game on the trot.
“In the second half we did better and perhaps deserved a point, so I still praise my players for their performance,” said the Coach.
“Now we must focus on Bologna and then the rescheduled derby with Genoa, which are two extremely important games for us.”
This week the fans released a statement urging Sampdoria to sack Di Carlo.
“We do not deserve this position in the table. The transfer window developed in an unexpected manner, so we must give the new players time to settle.
“Do I feel calm? I cannot say that as such, but I feel the club has faith in me.”
