Luigi Di Biagio has expressed his delight at sealing a move to Ascoli, and is confident his new side can avoid relegation this season.

The veteran midfielder was unveiled by Ascoli last week after joining on a free transfer until the end of the season.

He believes Ascoli have the ability to drag themselves away from danger, even though they have yet to win a game in Serie A this term.

"The supporters want survival, but they must be calm," he urged. "Ascoli have the potential to achieve it.

"I am pleased to be here and to play for this side. I consider it an exciting adventure and I think that in a couple of weeks I will be ready to play."

Di Biagio has not played this season after ending a three-year spell with Brescia over the summer.
