Cabral: Happy about move to Genoa

Cabral: Happy about move to Genoa

The former Swiss Under-21 international signed for Sunderland in the summer from FC Basel, but failed to break into the first team under either Paolo Di Canio or Gus Poyet.

A loan deal for the 25-year-old has now been agreed, and confirmed by Sunderland, and he is looking forward to the move having arrived in Italy on Thursday.

Speaking to Sky Sports Italia he said: "I am here to help Genoa and to play.

"Last year I've played in the Europa League and playing in that tournament again is my aim and I want to help Genoa make that."

Genoa currently sit ninth in Serie A.

Poyet said: "It was difficult for Cabral to play - sometimes there is not a clear reason but there are other players in his position and we were looking for special things and he didn't work, for me at least.

"Now he's got a very good opportunity to play in Italy with a very good club and I hope everything goes well for him."

Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). 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.
