Inter Milan coach Roberto Mancini has admitted his admiration for Genoa striker Marco Borriello.

Borriello is on-loan at Genoa from AC Milan, but is reluctant to return to the Rossoneri unless he is guaranteed regular first team action.

Ahead of tonight's match, Mancini said: "I have always liked Marco Borriello. He has a centre-forward's physique and in the past has not been able to perform to his levels because he hasn't played much.

"Genoa play well and only lost away to Fiorentina after putting in a great game."
