Walter Zenga admits he was ‘partly to blame’ for his demise as Sampdoria Coach and is not eyeing any revenge with Crotone.
The Pitagorici boss today faces off against his old employers, having had an unsuccessful five months in the Marassi dugout before being replaced by Vincenzo Montella in 2015.
However, speaking at a Press conference, the former Palermo, Catania and Wolves tactician admitted he now possesses a different attitude to the one he had three years ago.
“Going back to Samp was fantastic. If it didn’t go well, it was partly my fault as well,” Zenga told reporters.
“I didn’t have the same attitude as I do today.
“That negative experience helped me. Then, Massimo Ferrero admitted it was a mistake to bring me in but I don’t have any desire for revenge.
“For me, Samp will always be an ideal place to work.”
Zenga also featured as a player for Samp between 1994 and 1996.
