This evening at 19.00 hours the transferperiod in January ended in Italy. Genoa sold 4 substitutes: defenders: Andrea Masiello (Bari, Serie B) and Francesco Bega (Brescia, Serie B), midfielder Manuel Coppola (Siena) and striker Papa Waigo (Fiorentina). Only Francesco Bega is sold definitively, 50% of the ownership of the other 3 is still in Genoa’s hands.
Genoa also bought 4 players: Domenico Criscito (substitute of Masiello), Anthony Vanden Borre (Bega), Matias Masiero (Coppola) and Wilson (Papa Waigo). The new players are younger and all very talented, so let’s hope they can improve with Mr. Gasperini.
Genoa Club Amsterdam wants to thank Genoano of the year 2005-2006 Manuel Coppola for the special friendship and we hope “Coppolino” returns after this season in his loved red and blue shirt. On the other hand we are happy that Marco di Vaio stays with us and we hope he will play and score again very soon, like he did always and everywhere.
