Sebastien Frey was in a downbeat mood despite saving a penalty at the weekend, revealing his efforts were 'worth nothing'.
Frey saved a 58th-minute penalty after Dario Dainelli felled Sergio Pellissier in the penalty area.
Dainelli was sent off as the last man, but despite Frey's penalty save ensuring Genoa initially held on to their one-goal lead they had at the time, Chievo eventually broke through to win 2-1, after boxing the 10-man Grifone into their own half for the closing third of the game.
The Frenchman was disappointed at the final whistle, and let his frustration be known.
"Despite my saves we did not take the points: my saves are worth nothing.
"The defeat hurts. We took the lead at a ground where it is not easy to win. There will be work to figure out where to correct our mistakes."
