Gilardino on Malinovsky: In his current role, he influences Genoa’s game

In the 16th round of the Italian Serie A, Genoa and Juventus shared points, drawing 1:1.

After the match, the head coach of the Griffins, Alberto Gilardino, noted the play of Ruslan Malinovsky, whom he does not use as close to the attack as he did earlier in the Ukrainian’s career.

«I did not change its technical settings, but only corrected the tactical ones. I think that at this point in his career, playing this role makes him better,” the Italian was quoted as saying by Pazzi Di Fanta.

«He has power in his legs, he influences the game. He played an important game like the player he is. As I said, the purpose of this match is to put Juventus in a difficult position by taking advantage of his qualities.»
