Schone loving Genoa life

Former Ajax midfielder Lasse Schone says he is loving life at Genoa and playing in ‘beautiful’ Serie A.

Schone surprisingly swapped the Champions League semi-finals and an Eredivisie title with Ajax for a Genoa side in transition, but the Dane insists he was right to make the move.

“I didn’t plan to leave Ajax,” the 33-year-old was quoted as saying by ANSA.

“I thought I’d look around and see if there could be a new challenge for me.

“Genoa immediately gave me good feelings. My wife and I think Italy is a great country, we’ve often gone there on holiday and we found a wonderful culture.

“Playing in Serie A is an advantage. It wasn’t easy at first but, once I got used to it, it was beautiful.

“For now, things are going very well.”
