Eight months after playing in the Champions League, defeat to Palermo at the weekend guaranteed that Sampdoria would be relegated to Serie B for the 2011/12 season.

Sampdoria's Captain and longest serving player Angelo Palombo didn't take the defeat too well, refused to leave the field and eventually made a lap around the stadium to acknowledge the team's fans.

Warning : Crying ahead.

I like how you can see the ball going to left field for an instant before it changes course and heads towards the nearest reporter it can kill.
