Bovo excited by Genoa return

Cesare Bovo is eagerly looking forward to playing for Genoa again in Serie A following his summer move from Palermo.

The 28-year-old spent the 2007-08 campaign at the Stadio Ferraris before moving to Palermo. He's now back after three years in Sicily.

"It'll be a great sensation to put this shirt on again and to once more take to the field at Marassi," the centre-back noted.

"It was easy for me to fit back into this healthy squad even if only two players are still here from my previous spell – Marco Rossi and Alessio Scarpi."

Genoa entertain newly promoted Atalanta this weekend as Serie A finally kicks off after strike action saw Week 1 postponed.
