Sporting director Carlo Osti says Fabio Quagliarella “illuminates Sampdoria like the Lanterna illuminates Genoa”.
The veteran set up two goals in Monday’s win over Spal, and scored 19 Serie A goals last season.
“He illuminates Sampdoria like the Lanterna illuminates Genoa,” Osti said at an event in the city today.
“He’s a great champion, and those who play with him can take advantage of his intelligence.
“An assist man? I hope others will play that role on Sunday, so he can beat least year’s goal record.”
