Mario Santana: Delighted to have linked up with Fabio Liverani at Genoa

The 31-year-old playmaker has penned a three-year contract with the Rossoblu.

It was expected that Santana would be on the move this summer after falling out of favour at Napoli.

He spent the 2012/13 campaign on loan at Torino and remained on the fringes of the fold after returning to Naples.

Santana is delighted to have secured a permanent switch elsewhere and is looking forward to working under new Genoa boss Fabio Liverani - a man he played alongside during their days together at Fiorentina.

He told Pianetagenoa1893.net: "I cannot wait to get started.

"I know Liverani very well and he convinced me to choose Genoa during a phone conversation."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
