Ballardini: 'Piatek runs the game'

Genoa Coach Davide Ballardini said top scorer Krzysztof Piatek isn’t just contributing goals. “He is first to track back and help.”

Piatek was on target with another brace in the 2-1 victory away to Frosinone, taking his tally to eight goals in just six Serie A games.

“I see more and more of a collective becoming a team,” said the Coach in his Press conference.

“We were balanced both attacking and defending, so this is the result. Piatek is always important for us, even if he doesn’t score goals, because he fights hard for every ball and is the first to track back and help the defence. He runs the game.

“I also want to underline the strong performance from Christian Kouame, because he deserved a goal and it’s a pity he hit the woodwork in the second half.

“I believe Frosinone will have their say in the race for Serie A safety this season, as they have quality, physicality and a great atmosphere in their home stadium.”
