Genoa had an unusual approach to training today, which included an alfresco barbecue and cards tournament.
The Rossoblu are without their internationals this week, so Gigi De Canio opted for a morale-boosting day at the training ground.
After the morning session, the players set up a gazebo on the field and brought out an electric barbecue to prepare their chicken lunch.
The squad returned to work for an afternoon training session before sitting down to a tournament of Italian card game Scopa.
