Andersen: “I thank president Ferrero. What a chance for me at Sampdoria”

The deal may have flown under the radar but it all came to a positive conclusion as Joachim Andersen travelled to the Mugnaini to meet his new employers before heading off to join up with Denmark Under-21s for their matches against the Faroe Islands and Lithuania.

“I’m a strong central defender and I think Giampaolo can help take me to the next level,” he revealed exclusively to Samp TV.

“I thank president Massimo Ferrero for this opportunity and I can’t wait to get started.”
