Fabio Quagliarella put an end to Juventus rumours by reiterating his love and commitment to Sampdoria in a social media post.
Quagliagol wrote this moving message to the fans on Instagram, alongside an image of himself with his hand across the Sampdoria club badge on his jersey.
“If you have given so much and received even more, if every time you feel the emotion beating in your chest, that means the bonds are stronger than anything, that they go beyond flattering courtship, that put to one side current events and respect history.
“This is what I think, how I live and how I play. Forza Samp.”
There had been reports Andrea Pirlo asked for the centre-forward, who turns 38 later this month, as a January signing to bolster his squad.
It would’ve been a return to Turin, as he already played here from 2010-14.
