Giampaolo promises more from 'extraordinary' Sampdoria
Sampdoria's upset of Juventus was the "icing on the cake" of their fine start to the season, according to boss Marco Giampaolo.
Sampdoria manager Marco Giampaolo believes his team is capable of continuing the impressive form that saw them stun Juventus 3-2 on Sunday.
Giampaolo's men ambushed the champions in a scintillating second half at Stadio Luigi Ferraris, scoring all three of their goals in the space of 27 minutes.
The hosts did need to survive a few nervy seconds after Juve struck twice in stoppage time, but held on to maintain their perfect home record in the league.
And the former Cagliari and Catania boss is confident they can build on their current sixth spot.
"We have to ignore everything that is around us and focus only on our daily work," Giampaolo told Sky Sport Italia.
"So far we have been extraordinary this season and today's result was the icing on the cake. We will enjoy the moment without going overboard.
"We were organised in the first half, allowing Juve relatively little, while after the break we had moments of good football. At the end of the day, it would have been a terrible error to throw this away."
Sampdoria's next assignment is a trip to mid-table Bologna, before they return home to meet Pescara in the fourth round of Coppa Italia.
