Rigoni: “I’m thrilled to be back in Serie A”

After long and difficult negotiations which were only resolved just a matter of hours before the summer transfer window came to a close, Emiliano Rigoni has joined Sampdoria from Zenit Saint Petersburg and returns to Serie A after a brief stint with Atalanta last season. “I’m thrilled to be here and once again test myself in one of the most competitive leagues in the world,” stated the Argentine number 10, who brings a combination of brilliant technique and a burst of pace to the club.

The 26-year-old added, “I can’t wait to get started and work hard. I’m going to do my bit to generate optimism and will try to help the team and the coach, who really wanted to bring me in. I know the fans are wonderful and that’s something I like because it reminds me of Argentine supporters. My target is to have a fantastic year, both for them and the club.”
