Sampdoria coach Mazzarri: Quagliarella will stay

Mazzarri said: “If it depends on me, then I say he stays. In any case, the club has assured me that he is 99 per cent certain to remain.

“I do not know Quagliarella personally, but they tell me he is a great professional and very humble. The two goals he scored for Italy complicate matters, but at the start of next week we’ll know how this situation will pan out.”
