Pinilla attracted by Genoa history

New Genoa signing Mauricio Pinilla says the history and charm of the club were two of the things that lured him there.

The Chilean forward has joined the Rossoblu from Serie A rivals Cagliari and today spoke for the first time as a Luigi Ferraris player at a Press conference.

“I am very happy to be at Genoa,” Pinilla told reporters. “I have been welcomed as if I have been here for many years.

“I know that I can do very well, I am a central striker but I am ready to carry out anything the boss asks of me.

“I will do my best to get a starting place and be one of the most important players in the League.

“Genoa’s interest was strong. The charm and history of the club also convinced me.

“Scoring in the derby? If I’m here it’s because that’s what I’m expecting, as well as much more.”
