Marino 'bitter' at Genoa collapse

Pasquale Marino was “bitter” as Genoa threw away a lead in Palermo to lose 5-3. “We were too distracted.”

The Grifone had gone in front at the Stadio Barbera, but collapsed in this eight-goal thriller.

“It was certainly going to be difficult to get a positive result when missing practically the entire first choice defence,” noted the Coach.

“Nonetheless, I am bitter because despite the fact we scored three goals away from home in a difficult arena like Palermo, we still lost.

“It’s also worth noting three of their five goals came from dead ball situations. That proves we had the wrong attitude and were too distracted.”
