Giuseppe Marotta Targets Coppa Italia & Seventh Place For Sampdoria

Sampdoria general manager Giusepe Marotta has set two objectives for his team to achieve this season as Serie A draws to a close.

The Blucerchiati are still in the running for the Coppa Italia, a win in which would save what otherwise would go down as a fairly unimpressive season.

"We have two objectives for this season: seventh place in the league and the [Coppa] final in Rome," declared the Doriani's director to Cittadigenova.com.

"We are going through a good moment, but we still have time to improve and all the will to do so. Obviously these are not the years of [former president Paolo] Mantovani, where winning the Coppa Italia was something frequent.

"It would be a reason of great pride to succeed in winning it."

Sampdoria are currently in 11th place with 40 points from 31 games, six points away from seventh place.
