Claudio Ranieri is relishing the “wonderful” chance to make his Sampdoria debut against Roma, but tells players to “fight to the death to ensure their fans are proud.”
For the second time in seven months, Ranieri has replaced Eusebio Di Francesco at a Serie A club, having come in as caretaker manager for Roma in March.
In a twist of fate, his debut for Samp will be against his beloved hometown club this weekend.
