Frey wants Gilardino at Genoa

Sebastien Frey has invited former Fiorentina teammate Alberto Gilardino to join him at Genoa.

The goalkeeper signed for the Grifone earlier this summer and the transfer rumour mill is suggesting that the Rossoblu now want to add the Italian international to their squad.

"Alberto is a friend, I love him and if he asks me about Genoa then I would tell him they are the right solution," the Frenchman told Il Secolo XIX.

"If he can choose Genoa then he wouldn't be making a mistake. However, it doesn't depend on me, the club makes the decisions."

Frey was Fiorentina's highest earner, along with Adrian Mutu and Gilardino, before being told to find a new club.

"They decided that their important contracts had become a problem," the former Inter man continued.

"I'm just surprised with the way they handled the situation. All they had to do was sit me down and talk to me about it…

"Genoa? Years ago there was a project to get Fiorentina into the Champions League, I believe we can do the same here.

"This will be my last club, also because of the contract which I have been given. I want to give a lot, as a man and a player. I want to leave a mark."
