Genoa coach De Canio pleased with preseason form

Genoa coach Gigi De Canio is pleased with their progress in preseason.

Genoa were defeated 1-0 by Spain's Levante yesterday.

"I am satisfied with the work we've done in pre-season and the responses I received," said De Canio.

"I saw mostly positive aspects from the game with Levante, although of course we still need to improve in some respects.

"We played with a certain intensity, keeping in mind the heat and the level of fitness training we are at right now.

"I 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.

"This all forms a good foundation for the season, although we are naturally a work in progress."
