Iago Falque has claimed he is “available” for Davide Nicola ahead of Genoa's big game against Lazio and hopes the No10 shirt “will bring me luck”.
The former Torino star has returned to the Marassi but has yet to come off the bench after suffering two injuries and has been eased into the squad because of his lack of match fitness this term.
Falque looks forward to play against Lazio at home and has claimed they will make life hard for the Biancocelesti.
“They are doing great, but we are playing at the Luigi Ferraris,” he told Il Secolo XIX. “Beating Genoa at home is not easy for anyone.
“I scored with Torino at the last game of the campaign last year. Then I had a very complicated year. I suffered two injuries, but there are still some months to recover my year.”
The new No10 at the Grifone is hoping to get back on track at the Marassi, as he returned to the club where he scored 13 times in 32 Serie A games in 2014-15.
“I’m missing the rhythm of playing matches, but it will come back slowly,” he added. “I’m available. They have handed me an important number and I hope it will bring me luck.”
