Mattia Bani: “The best year of my life. Genoa, exponential growth”.

Mattia Banidefender of Genoaspoke to The 19th Century recounting the satisfactions but also the regrets of the last year: “It was my best season. I feel stronger and more of a leader. Starting from the amateurs, I am proud to have given the armband to a club like Genoa. Only one regret: not having reached 100 appearances I will soon.”

Bani then spoke about the growth of Gilardino’s Genoa: “At the beginning we struggled a bit to get into rhythm, some players were missing who needed some time after injuries to get into shape. Nobody expected growth so on our part, an exponential growth, so much so that we scored many more points in the second round compared to the first leg.”
