Genoa - SampdoriaAs you will all be aware Sampdoria were relegated from Serie A last weekend, leaving the port city of Genoa with only one team left in Italy’s top flight.

So Genoa, after taunting their rivals during the recent derby with banners such as ‘ Bye, Bye’ and ‘See you on Saturday afternoon at three o’clock’ – in reference to the Serie B kick off time, have gone one better.

In honour of their fallen foes, they decided to hold a funeral for the Blucerchiati earlier today in Genoa, and us lucky folk at Forza Italian Football managed to get a front row seat, so check out the reenactment below.
