Pozzi surprised by Sampdoria move

The 23-year-old has joined Sampdoria on loan from Empoli and the deal could turn into a permanent move.

“I did not expect this transfer, therefore I’m even happier,” declared Pozzi to sportmediaset.it.

“I’m dazed, but I understand that this is the chance of a lifetime. I will play with two champions and a monster like Cassano. I will try to learn and to be always ready for the team.

“My objective is to be re-confirmed. At the end of the season I don’t want to have regrets, I will give my best to deserve Sampdoria also in 2010/11.”
