Manchester City are to play an exhibition game for the flood victims of Genoa.

City will play a friendly against a joint Genoa-Sampdoria team to raise funds for those affected by the floods.

The official Genoa website confirmed Sheikh Mansour has given the all-clear to take part in the match and all proceeds will go to the families of those who lost their loved ones, houses and businesses in last week's devastating floods.

At least six people died when a freak thunderstorm rapidly raised the level of the rivers and caused flash floods that swept through the centre of the city.
