Genoa-players celebrate the 2nd goal of Jankovic against Toro

Tonight Genoa played a fantastic match against our friends of Torino and scored 3 times by head. With the strikers Sculli, Olivera and Jankovic in the line-up the Rossoblu-boys started immediately offensive and very powerfull. In the 18th minute Genoa deserved a corner after a good combination of Jankovic and Olivera that was stopped at last by a defender of Toro. The corner was strongly headed in by Biava who did not give ex-Sampdoria goalkeeper Sereni any change: 1-0. Despite several chances to double the score, the first half ended with only 1 goal difference.

In the second half the match was over after only 3 minutes when Jankovic headed a fantastic cross of Sculli in the net: 2-0. Just as in the first half Genoa created many changes with fantastic football before Thiago Motta headed again a corner behind Sereni in the 85th minute: 3-0. Our Brasilian midfielder got injured by this goal, so Omar Milanetto came into the field to play the last minutes in which Genoa also could have scored a fourth and fifth goal. As a matter of friendship with Torino we all can be happy that the final score stayed 3-0. Man of the match without any doubt: Bosko Jankovic.

Ivan Juric against Livorno, 06-01-2009

Today Genoa played a friendly in and against Livorno (Serie B) and draw by 3-3. Genoa took 3 times the lead by goals of Jankovic, Rossi and Olivera, all in the first half. Genoa missed the long time injured Paro, Gasbarroni and Palladino and the slightly injured Milito, Rubinho and Vanden Borre, which 3 hopefully can play against Torino Saturday.

Last days the rumours said that Inter wants to buy Diego Milito as a substitute of Adriano. Today our president Mr. Preziosi said, just as a few weeks ago when Real Madrid wanted our topscorer, that Diego is not for sale and he doesn’t answer any more questions about this subject. Mr. Preziosi is tired of the questions about Milito, just as all Genoa-fans !
