Von Bergen hails new club Genoa

Swiss defender Steve Von Bergen has expressed his satisfaction upon signing for Genoa.

The centre-back, who has spent the last two campaigns with Cesena, agreed to join the Rossoblu back in February but has only recently formalised his arrival.

“When Genoa became interested in me I had no doubt,” said the Swiss international on Genoa's official website.

“I have always followed this club with sympathy – the oldest club in Italy, the first team to win the Italian title and the fourth most successful in Serie A history.

“Knowing the language will help me integrate myself quickly. I hope to take away satisfaction even if it is early to make predictions about the objectives.

“We're just beginning.”
