Iachini thanks Sassuolo squad

Beppe Iachini thanked his Sassuolo players after beating Sampdoria to take them definitively out of the danger zone.

The Neroverdi mathematically secured their Serie A status with a 1-0 victory over Sampdoria today.

“We were coming off some good results and were unfortunate against Crotone in the final minutes,” the Coach told Sky Sport Italia.

“Samp didn’t have any chances today and we are very happy to have achieved our objective. The team has always worked well and I can only thank these players. It wasn’t easy to secure safety so early.”

Matteo Politano was about to leave Sassuolo in January, yet he scored the decisive goal today.

“I spoke to the club and we needed a replacement in case he did leave. He had a moment of difficulty, but together we got through it with the right bond between youth and experience.”
