Sampdoria have unveiled Walter Mazzarri as their new coach following the departure of Walter Novellino after five seasons at the Luigi Ferraris Stadium.

The 45-year-old, who steered perennial strugglers Reggina to safety despite an 11-point deduction following the match-fixing scandal, has signed a two-year contract with the Blucerchiati.

A club statement read: "UC Sampdoria wishes to announce that it has agreed a two-year contract with Walter Mazzarri as first-team manager. Mazzarri and his staff, Giuseppe Pondrelli (fitness coach), Nunzio Papale (goalkeeping coach), Niclo´ Frustalupi (assistant manager) will be officially unveiled to the public on June 5."
