Gilardino makes Genoa pledge

Alberto Gilardino is happy to be making transfer headlines, but he’s committed himself to current club Genoa.

Toronto FC are understood to be planning a January bid for the Italian international striker, but he doesn’t seem interested.

“It’s always a good thing that people are talking about me,” the former Parma, Milan and Fiorentina ace stated.

“However, I’m a Genoa player and I want to remain here, always doing well in the process.”

Gilardino was the match-winner on Wednesday as, although he missed a penalty, he did net the only goal of the game in a 1-0 over Parma.

“It was a really intense tie,” the man who spent last season at Bologna noted. “The win was so important as it has allowed us to take a step forward.

“What we showed out there on the pitch is what the fans want to see.”

Genoa, now bossed by Gian Piero Gasperini, are joint twelfth in the Serie A standings. They are away at Lazio this weekend.
