Genoa, the growth of Josep Martinez: two years at the top and in the background the courts of Inter

With humility, patience and a lot of quality. These are just three of the virtues of Josep Martinez, necessary to take over Genoa. With your hands but also with your feet. It wasn’t just the saves, which were absolutely decisive first to earn a return to Serie A and then to obtain a quiet safety, but also the ball-on-the-ground plays that coach Gilardino wants so much. In fact, in the plans of the rossoblù coach there are a lot of so-called starting from the bottom with the goalkeeper becoming the first director. And in this the Spanish goalkeeper has grown a lot by showing off and becoming an absolute certainty for the Grifone in this championship.

The eyes of Inter
The performances certainly did not go unnoticed. So much so that the Italian champions Inter are thinking about it to have a valid alternative to Sommer. In fact, on Wednesday there would have been contact between the two clubs to understand if there are the details to possibly set up a negotiation. For its part, however, Genoa is firm on its positions, setting the starting bid at 18 million euros. Obviously we are talking about a valuable piece of Gilardino’s team who however enjoys an excellent market. We will see what the evolutions will be in this summer which promises to be hot not only from a climatic point of view.

Josep’s words
I feel great here, that’s what I can say” he said on the sidelines of a meet and greet with the fans more than a month ago. However, this is a symptom of how fond he is of the place that has given him so much in terms of growth. “For “It’s been a very important two years,” Martinez continued. I lost consistency and confidence in Germany without playing, now I’m fine and I want to continue improving.”
