Cavasin thrilled to lead Samp

Alberto Cavasin is delighted to have the opportunity to lead Sampdoria until the end of the season.

The 55-year-old was appointed on an interim basis following the dismissal of Domenico Di Carlo.

Asked to explain his football philosophy, Cavasin said: "I won the Coach of the Year award playing 3-5-2 and won a League title playing 4-4-2.

"I will try and find the best formation for this team, knowing that they have done a lot with 4-4-2.

"I don't believe that it's a disadvantage not having a natural centre-forward. I will listen to the players and then decide.

"I will also speak with Di Carlo, with whom I shared a beautiful season at Lecce. I was on the bench. He was a Coach on the pitch.

"Anyway, I can assure you that in Catania on Sunday we will be ready both from a physical and tactical point of view, and we'll aim to get a result.

"I am very motivated and happy to be able to lead this great team and I am not thinking about any objective in particular, but at one game at a time."
