Genoa president Enrico Preziosi is proud to be leading the club during it's 120 year celebrations.

Genoa Cricket and Football Club were the first ever Italian side to be formed on September 7 1893.

"I am proud and honoured to be the President of a team with such great history. Anyone can win a Scudetto, but no other club has our history," said Preziosi.

"Being President of Genoa is a great responsibility and I hope in this historic campaign we do not suffer the way we did in recent years. We have what it takes to avoid that."
