Sampdoria director of sports Carlo Osti has hailed veteran striker Fabio Quagliarella as ‘timeless’ and ‘immortal’.

Sampdoria demolished Napoli 3-0 last Sunday. Quagliarella completed the scoring with a sensational back-heel flick goal.

Carlo Osti praised Quagliarella and expressed the club’s happiness to have a player of his calibre in their ranks.

“Fabio is a great champion the kind of player who is timeless,” Osti told Sky Sports Italia, via Football Italia.

“He is immortal. We are very happy to have him at Samp and hope he can stay with us as long as possible.

“After the defeat to Udinese, it was important for us to understand how we’d do against a big side like Napoli. We put in the perfect performance, it all went well, but we know there’s a long way to go this season.

“We need to improve upon last term, especially our away form. That means the trip to Frosinone will be very important to test ourselves.”
