Del Neri revels in success

Luigi Del Neri preferred to enjoy Sampdoria's fourth-place finish rather than comment on his future after a thrilling final day to the season in Serie A.

Del Neri, who has been linked with the job at Juventus, described the achievement as like winning the title and paid tribute to his players.

But the coach refused to give any indication of whether he is planning to stay with Sampdoria or look for a new challenge.

"We have done fantastically, especially in the second half of the season," he told Sky Sport. "We have got a result like a Scudetto, considering this result wasn't expected.

"My future? I don't want to talk about this. Let's celebrate the party with Sampdoria.

"Today, we think only about what we have done and what we have achieved.

"I think Sampdoria deserve the Champions League. We have been without it for many years and are proud to achieve this."
