Genoa boss Gian Piero Gasperini hailed goalkeeper Mattia Perin after their draw with AC Milan.

Genoa took a point away from Milan with a 1-1 draw.

Perin performed a series of stunning saves, including one on Mario Balotelli's penalty, becoming only the second goalkeeper to deny SuperMario in his professional career.

"Mattia Perin has great reactions and I think his best quality is his courage in claiming the ball, something few goalkeepers have nowadays. He is very quick off the line and therefore helps the team a great deal in defence," said Gasperini.
