Genoa striker Alberto Gilardino is adamant he is happy to have remained at Stadio Luigi Ferraris despite the late bid for his services from Juventus.
The experienced forward was the subject of a last-gasp move from the Bianconeri on transfer deadline day that was supposed to also include Marco Borriello and Fabio Quagliarella.
With the deals proving too complicated to be completed before the transfer deadline, Gilardino ended up missing out on dream move to Turin.
Nevertheless, the Italy international doesn’t seem to regret the fact he will remain at Genoa for the foreseeable future.
“I’m very happy to have remained at Genoa,” the experienced forward said on Twitter. “I will give my all for this shirt.”
Gilardino returned to the club following a very successful loan spell at Bologna that saw him bag 13 goals in 36 Serie A appearances for Felsinei.
The 31-year-old is widely regarded as one of Serie A’s most prolific active strikers, having bagged 160 top flight goals playing for Piacenza, Verona, Parma, Milan, Fiorentina, Genoa and Bologna.
