Giampaolo wants Foggia reunion

Marco Giampaolo has asked for his first player as Cesena boss – Italy and Lazio winger Pasquale Foggia.

Giampaolo was confirmed as the new Sea Horses tactician this week and he's making plans to keep the club in Serie A.

Amongst the players he is interested in is Foggia, a midfielder who he knows well given their time together at Ascoli in 2005-06.

Foggia was arguably the Bianconeri's best player that term and was instrumental in keeping the club in the top-flight. He scored four goals in 34 games.

He joined Milan the following summer but was quickly shipped off to Lazio, who then loaned him to Reggina and Cagliari. The latter were again bossed by Giampaolo.

The 28-year-old returned to Lazio in 2008 and has been with the club ever since.

He has won three full Italian caps and scored in the 3-0 win over Northern Ireland in June 2009.
