Emergency in attack for Alberto Gilardino

With just a few days to go before the league match against Hellas Verona validating the 31st day of the championship, bad news arrives from the infirmary for Alberto Gilardino and Genoa. The instrumental examinations to which Ruslan Malinovskyi underwent, in fact, showed an injury to the hamstring of the left thigh that will keep the Ukrainian midfielder in the pits for at least a month.

Taking stock of the situation on the injured in the Rossoblù house was the well-known local newspaper "PrimoCanale": " The muscular problem of Malinovskyi è serious resulting in a stop for the Ukrainian midfielder of about a month. And Vitinha will probably have to skip the next match as well. The Portuguese striker will not be forced out in the coming days so as not to risk other consequences. Retegui also is disqualified but will return immediately next week because the ankle problem does not raise any particular alarm. Fortunately Gilardino should recover Ekuban and also Martin in the coming days will return" to the group".

Ahead of the challenge against Verona, the Grifone coach will have to deal with a strong emergency situation regarding the attack. At the 'Bentegodi', in all likelihood, it will be Gudmundsson and Ekuban who will make up the Rossoblù offensive tandem.
