Official: Genoa sell Milanetto

Genoa have officially sold Omar Milanetto to Swiss side FC Luzern after a furious row with fans.

The midfielder had been a very popular figure in the club, but his rapport with the ultras was damaged when he hurled an insult at the Curva Nord during the Genoa derby against Sampdoria.

Graffiti appeared on the walls outside the training ground urging Milanetto to leave.

Genoa had tried to convince him to stay, but it seems he has opted to walk away.

This evening the club announced Milanetto has joined Swiss team FC Luzern.

He had been at Marassi since 2006, helping Genoa to promotion from Serie B.
