Genoa coach Gigi De Canio is pleased with their progress in preseason.
Genoa were defeated 1-0 by Spain's Levante yesterday.
â€śI am satisfied with the work weâ€™ve done in pre-season and the responses I received,â€ť said De Canio.
â€śI saw mostly positive aspects from the game with Levante, although of course we still need to improve in some respects.
â€śWe played with a certain intensity, keeping in mind the heat and the level of fitness training we are at right now.
â€śI really liked the great team spirit on show. There was a sense of belonging, a clear idea in our minds of the kind of football we want to play and the willingness to work hard.
â€śThis all forms a good foundation for the season, although we are naturally a work in progress.â€ť
