Genoa coach Alberto Malesani happily dedicated victory over Lazio to pessimistic president Enzo Preziosi.

Malesani has publicly lambasted by Preziosi after the 2-2 draw with Atalanta in the opening round, but impressed in a 2-1 victory away to Lazio.

“I dedicate the win to President Preziosi,” smiled Malesani. “I came here because he chose me and I am proud of that fact.

“We have a good rapport and are working side by side to help this project grow.

“However, in order to be on the field the way that I want, I did say it’d take a little time. Even more time will be needed to change our mentality.”
