Marchese: Everyone in the same direction

Genoa defender Giovanni Marchese has urged his teammates ‘to go in the same direction’ as they prepare to play Inter.

The Grifone host the Nerazzurri on Sunday looking for the three points that could take them up to eighth in the table.

But the full-back has insisted that his men have to be in it together if they are to beat a tough Milanese outfit.

“We all have to go in the same direction,” he told reporters. “The team, the fans, everyone – we have to have the same goal if we want to go far.

“Inter are going to be strong on Sunday, but I believe we can put in a great performance.

“We are doing well, yes – but we can do better.

“The Nerazzurri are a strong, well organised side – they may be going through a difficult time but many teams would love to have the problems they have!”
