Nicola: 'Genoa deserve Serie A safety'

Coach Davide Nicola maintains Genoa ‘deserve Serie A safety and we want to take it against Sassuolo’ on Wednesday evening.

It kicks off at 18.30 UK time (17.30 GMT), click here for a match preview.

There is a four-point gap from Lecce and the relegation zone, as well as their superior head-to-head record, so the Grifone are on the verge of securing their top flight status.

“We know it won’t be easy, but at the same time we only need one positive result to complete what we truly believe that we deserve,” said Nicola in his press conference.

“It’s not just for us, but for all our fans, those who work for Genoa and this club’s history. We deserve it because we’ve focused on nothing else for seven months and dedicate every drop of sweat to achieving this aim.

“This is a great opportunity and we want to take it against Sassuolo. The Neroverdi have not gone beyond their expectations this season, as they’ve been impressive for a while and Roberto De Zerbi has done an extraordinary job over the last three years. The team has a real identity and caused problems for the biggest clubs.

“Having said that, our passion and determination to achieve our target can make the difference. We want to be aggressive and attacking. It’s basically been two seasons in one, with a huge gap between them, as well as many changes to the squad in January.”
