Sannino 'calm' over Chievo start

New Chievo boss Giuseppe Sannino has admitted he is excited to get started at the Bentegodi.

The 56-year-old was officially announced on Monday as Eugenio Corini's successor, and the former Palermo man has claimed that the Gialloblu went all-out to get him.

“Chievo were one of the first teams to contact me,” he told Gazzetta dello Sport.

“They really put a strong emphasis on me.

“[President Luca] Campedelli and [sporting director Giovanni] Sartori are serious people.

“Staying in Serie A was the best option for me.

“I know the team is followed by a lot of people in the city of Verona, but I am calm.”
