President Enrico Preziosi confirms former Sao Paulo defender Diego Lugano will not be joining Genoa
President Enrico Preziosi has confirmed former Sao Paulo defender Diego Lugano will not be joining Genoa.
The Uruguay international, who is a free agent, had been expected to sign a deal with the Italian side, but Preziosi is unconvinced about his fitness.
When asked whether he would bring in Lugano, he refuted the suggestion.
“No, he has played too little in recent years to give us guarantees on his form,” he told Tuttomercatoweb.
“With Alessandro Matri and Mauricio Pinilla, we have completed our front line. Now we need something at the back and we’ll announce a new defender tomorrow, then the squad will be complete.
“I had wanted to get a complete team in place by August 10 and I managed it.”
