Genoa president Enrico Preziosi has launched a furious attack on summer additions Miguel Veloso and Houssine Kharja.
Preziosi is unimpressed by the midfield pair's work rate.
â€śWhat do I make of Veloso? There are some players who donâ€™t realise what it means to play for Genoa and in January we can make them understand,â€ť slammed Preziosi in the Secolo XIX newspaper.
â€śIt is better to have donkeys who run rather than thoroughbred horses who stand still. We donâ€™t play with horizontal passes and light touches, even if they are internationals.
â€śPeople like Luca Toni and Omar Milanetto come off the bench and battle hard to turn the game around.
â€śKharja is another one who, along with Veloso, has not found his form and we are struggling in midfield.
â€śEither they wake up before January or we will make some changes."
