Sampdoria and Cremonese to Stick with Their Coaches

The long World Cup stoppage offers Serie A teams a golden opportunity to usher in a new coach, but there may not be any changes. Massimiliano Alvini, Dejan Stankovic, and Salvatore Bocchetti are on the hot seat, but they could all still be at the helm of Cremonese, Sampdoria, and Verona once the League resumes in January.

The Blucerchiati president Marco Lanna confirmed the Serbian boss talking to Il Secolo XIX.

“The rumors about a dismissal continue to be out of control, but we have supreme confidence in him, and it won’t be short-lived. He will stay our coach until the end of the season, no matter the results. It’s not an economic matter. He’d leave without asking for any compensation if he thought he wasn’t the right man for the job. Coming here was a gamble for him. He had offers from other and less problematic sides. He picked us, and we will give him the right support. We hope we can open a cycle with him.”

Cremonese are on the same wavelength as Sampdoria, while Verona are still pondering what to do. According to Gianluca Di Marzio, the Grigiorossi considered a switch, but they intend to move forward with their current gaffer and look for reinforcements in January.

The Scaligeri president discussed the topic with TeleNuovo.

“I think Bocchetti is the best option to have continuity with the past, but I’m appalled for the fact that this solution didn’t lead to any positive result. It’s fair to reflect. We are eight points below the 17th position, while we could have been much closer. I can’t properly judge the situation right now. There’s a mental element that we need to figure out.”
