Saponara to ‘seize’ Samp chance

Sampdoria new boy Riccardo Saponara says he will ‘try to seize this opportunity as best I can’ after arriving for his medical.

Saponara checked in for tests with Samp on Monday morning, having signed on loan from Fiorentina with an option to buy, and the former Empoli attacker is excited about working with Marco Giampaolo again.

“I’m ready, it’s a great opportunity for me and I’ll try to seize it as best I can,” he told reporters.

“Giampaolo? We know each other, we’ve lived many moments together and now I’ll have the opportunity to talk to him.”
