Genoa president Enrico Preziosi insists there's no need to panic as they continue to search for their first win of the season.
"I thought Livorno would be our first victory, but this team still needs to improve through trial and error," he insisted.
"Every single player deserves praise for their efforts. Serie A is not Serie B, but I have every faith in the squad and the Coach to adapt and survive."
"We have showed that we can compete against sides also looking to keep afloat," agreed coach Gian Piero Gasperini. "It's a good platform and we will approach the derby with belief."
