Criscito to join Zenit next week?

While Liverpool have joined Inter and Milan as contenders for Domenico Criscito, it's reported he'll join Russians Zenit next week.

The Genoa defender is hot property on the transfer market and was thought to be waiting for the summer to make a decision on his future.

However, newspaper reports suggest he could leave Marassi and Italy within a matter of days.

The Russian transfer window does not close until March 15, so Luciano Spalletti's Zenit St Petersburg are busy reinforcing their squad.

Ballardini: 'Genoa can shock Inter'

Inter are on fine form, but Davide Ballardini believes Genoa can cause an upset with “pace and depth” at San Siro.

“Considering our characteristics, we have to use up a lot of energy to get results,” explained the Coach ahead of tomorrow's match.

“Genoa have quality players and are accustomed to playing without too many defensive considerations. We must be tight, put pressure on to win back possession in midfield and push forward with pace and depth.

Kaladze extends Genoa contract

Genoa have officially extended their contract with former Milan defender Kakhaber Kaladze for another two years.

The 33-year-old Georgian international joined in the summer and has proved such a success that he has already penned a new deal until June 2013.

“I left the most successful club in the world and settled into a different reality that could not be compared,” he told the official Genoa website.

Kharja future to be decided

The agent of Houssine Kharja insists it is too early to ponder whether his client has a long-term future at Inter.

The Moroccan joined the Nerazzurri from Genoa in a January loan deal with an option to buy clause inserted.

"Houssine and I are happy with his performances so far," Beppe Galli noted. "But we're not surprised, after all they clearly signed him for a reason.

"We would obviously be delighted if Inter eventually confirm him, but it is too early to talk about these things.

Genoa hit hard by suspensions

Antonio Floro Flores and Gelson Fernandes picked up two-match bans, as Genoa are decimated for their Inter match after insulting officials.

The tempestuous 2-1 defeat at Catania cost Genoa dearly, as it saw Coach Davide Ballardini, player Domenico Criscito and Floro Flores sent off.

Floro Flores had just been substituted when he hurled abuse at the fourth official and was sent off from the bench, earning a two-game ban.

Criscito saw red for the foul that gave away a contentious penalty, then Ballardini followed for dissent.

Ballardini seeks new Genoa thrills

Davide Ballardini had “a memorable week” with victories over Sampdoria and Roma, but warns Genoa's trip to Catania will be a tough test.

“Other than the victories, what made this such a memorable week was the way the wins came about,” smiled the tactician ahead of the 11.30 UK time kick-off.

The Rossoblu won the derby and then fought back from 3-0 down to beat Roma 4-3 in an epic thriller.

“That has to be in the past now, though. The team is in good shape and must look forward now with this style of football.

Line-ups: Ranocchia starts in Genoa

Giampaolo Pazzini starts against the club he left in January, as Sampdoria welcome Inter with Andrea Ranocchia's amazing recovery.

This is set to be an emotional encounter for Pazzini, who was a hero to the Marassi fans before his sale towards the end of the transfer window.

He steps out with the blue and black shirt in Genoa for the first time and leads a 4-3-1-2 system with Wesley Sneijder supporting him and Samuel Eto'o.

Preziosi: 'Get off Genoa's bandwagon'

Genoa President Enrico Preziosi has hit out at journalists who criticised his side earlier in the season and would now like to get back on the bandwagon.

The Rossoblu have won each of their last two games and appear to be on the brink of realising their potential in the final third of the season.

Genoa started the campaign in a lacklustre fashion despite spending in excess of €30m on new players.

Preziosi: I'd never abandon Genoa

Genoa President Enrico Preziosi has denied ever considering leaving the club even if he threatened to do so earlier this season.

Preziosi was fed up with the abuse his son was receiving from the supporters after helping out in the transfer market last summer.

Speaking to Radio Sportiva, Preziosi said: "I never seriously thought about abandoning Genoa also because the fans always showed their attachment to the shirt and to the club.

"Naturally it's also important to put out little fires that can be created."

Ballardini: I speak little and listen a lot

Genoa boss Davide Ballardini claims the secret of his success at the club is that he speaks little and listens a lot.

The Grifone have enjoyed an excellent week in Serie A, winning the Derby della Lanterna and then coming back from 3-0 down to beat Roma 4-3.

"I am made this way," Ballardini told La Gazzetta dello Sport. "I should be less of an unsociable bear, but it's difficult to transform myself.
