Genoa’s Alberto Gilardino previews Coppa Italia clash with Roma

Andy Mattioli

Genoa manager Alberto Gilardino spoke about tomorrow night’s Coppa Italia fixture against Roma. The up-and-coming coach also discussed the opportunity to face Jose Mourinho.

“Roma are an organized team,” he told reporters during his press conference.

“For me personally, meeting Mourinho and competing against him as a manager is a source of inspiration.”

“We know they’re strong, we’re aware of their qualities but at the same time we’re going to Rome in order to defend ourselves and try and steer the outcome in our favor.”
