A highly experienced journalist, I specialize in sports news and have been writing for The News Dept. for the past five years. Not only do I produce content that is both accurate and engaging, but I also work hard to stay abreast of current industry trends. My knowledge of various sports, coupled with excellent research skills make me a valuable asset to any publication or organization seeking an authority on the topic. In addition to my journalism career, I am actively involved in two professional organizations related to my field: The Sports Writers Association and the American Society of Journalists & Authors (ASJA).

More decisive days than ever. Between relegation, the business situation in serious crisis and heavy deadlines to be met, Sampdoria has had to deal with its future in recent weeks. For when the field has already given its verdict, there is much more outside. The most important game, which must be won at all costs to prevent the bankruptcy of the club. But something is moving for the takeover: Alessandro Barnaba, via the Merlyn Partners fund and directed by former Samp president Edoardo Garrone, e Andrea Radrizzaniowner of Leeds who, according to L’Equipe, had also involved PSG chairman Nasser Al Khelaifi, which would become a minority shareholder to expand the Qatar Sports Investments universe. This could be the winning move for the Leeds owner, who is also filling in the final details to join theagreement with Massimo Ferrero .Decisive days: the future is now.

The parachute

In the meantime, it is critical for blucerchiati greenhouse collect 40% of the «parachute» in advance due to relegation and the green light has already arrived. In this sense, it is important to clarify: after the Lega meeting held yesterday in Rome, a kind of “red Sampdoria rule” came out, but – in reality – there is no rule. League regulations simply stipulate that the teams have access to exactly 40% of the chute the day after the dispute in the last game of the championship in which relegation has occurred. The anomaly in this case lies in the fact that the Serie A season has been extended due to the World Cup in winter, with the deadline set for June and not May as usually happens: that’s why it was brought forward the payment of 40% of the parachute in favor of Sampdoria (but also of Cremonese). 10 million – 40% of the total of 25 belonging to blucerchiati – which is more convenient than ever.


At Sampdoria they are needed in the first place Tuesday 12 million available for first quarter salary payments to members. Failure to respect these deadlines will automatically apply a 4-point penalty to be served next season. Then there is the Irpef episode, which in the event of late payment would force the company to pay the full amount in one installment without the possibility of rescheduling. From June 6 creditors (to collect about 8-9 million from Sampdoria) can take legal action against the company, as this date is the expiration of the protective measures guaranteed by the negotiated settlement of the crisis, the top management of Sampdoria will face heavy vital financial guarantees for registration in the championship of next season. And finally there would be those 30-35 million to be paid to Massimo Ferrero, still a majority member of the club he has locked up in a trust. From there, the re-establishment of the club and the team would begin, debts permitting, because the “importance of the total debt equal to about 200 million euros” emerged from the documents presented in court.
