Unione Calcio Sampdoria had a decent season, in which it troubled the top three in the Serie A, and at half season even threatening to overahul Juventus's league title, before losing its form during the spring. Vincenzo Montella, brought in from rivals Genoa to replace departured Enrico Chiesa, sensationally equalled Chiesa's tally of 22 goals. Following the end of the season, coach Sven-Göran Eriksson moved to Lazio, and brought both Roberto Mancini and Siniša Mihajlović with him. With playmaker Clarence Seedorf departing for Real Madrid, Sampdoria was once again in a predicament. It still possessed Juan Sebastián Verón's unique qualities, however. The Argentinian was a genuine sensation in his first European season, and stayed on for another year.
