Maran: ‘Perfect Genoa not enough’

Rolando Maran insists Genoa must be prepared against Roma, because ‘100 per cent is not enough’ in this situation.

Cristian Zapata is out of the game, as he has tested positive for COVID-19.

“We must give more than 100 per cent, because 100 per cent is not enough against Roma. We have to allow them absolutely nothing,” the coach told the club website.

“Roma have this incredible physicality in their squad, especially on set plays, and can score goals against teams who man-mark or take a zonal approach. We have to work on our characteristics and increase the concentration levels in certain moments of the match.

“They have weaknesses too, and we must try to make the most of our own qualities, the ones we also saw in the first half against Torino, and we just need to be more consistent.”

Just as COVID-19 had seemed to leave Genoa, another case appeared with defender Cristian Zapata.

“We will follow the protocols, the same way we have done so far. It’s disappointing for Cristian, but we never quite completely emerged from this dark period.”
