Simeone: 'Goal past Juve, just like Diego'

Giovanni Simeone’s father Diego “told me scoring against Juventus was in our blood” and Genoa’s victory is “the best day of my career so far.”

The youngster was on target with a brace in the 3-1 triumph at Marassi, ending his six-game drought.

“I heard from my father, who told me he had scored against Juventus and therefore it was in our blood, so I had to do the same,” smiled Cholito on Mediaset Premium.

Diego, currently the Coach of Atletico Madrid, scored the winner when Lazio beat Juve in April 2000.

“This is the best day of my career so far. I always try to improve my play with back to goal, but still need to learn more about control and tactics.”
