Sampdoria have appointed Domenico Di Carlo as their new coach to fill the vacancy left by Juventus-bound Luigi del Neri.
"Sampdoria announces it has signed Mr Domenico Di Carlo as coach of the first team on a two-year contract," a club statement said, adding that he will be unveiled in Genoa on Friday.
Di Carlo, 46, resigned from Chievo on Wednesday after guiding the cash-strapped club to two impressive mid-table finishes in Serie A over the last two seasons.
The Sampdoria side he inherits finished fourth in the table last season, and will take part in the Champions League qualifying stages.
