Giampaolo: 'I was close to Juve'

Sampdoria Coach Marco Giampaolo has revealed that he was close to joining big clubs a few times, giving Juventus as an example.

The 49-year-old took Siena to a 14th-placed finish in Serie A during the 2008-09 season, which he admits prompted interest from the Bianconeri.

"I have been close to big clubs a few times," the Coach told Radio Anch'io Sport.

"They were nice opportunities that did not materialise. It happened with Juventus, with Milan and then with Roma. With Juventus it was after I was in charge of Siena."
