Sampdoria chief Edoardo Garrone has given his full backing to Coach Delio Rossi, despite a difficult start to the season.
The Bluerchiati have claimed just two points all term, failing to win any game with six gone already.
But the President has insisted that the 52-year-old is staying.
“We are going through a bad time but we all have to raise our levels,” he told Sky Sport Italia.
“The Coach is a big part of Sampdoria and we have never thought about getting rid of him.
“I’m sure Delio Rossi is the right man for this team and the right man to achieve the results we want.”
