Moretti looking forward to Valencia clash

Genoa defender Emiliano Moretti admits he is looking forward to face his former club Valencia in the Europa League.

The Italian spent several seasons at the Mestella.

“It will be special for me,” explained Moretti. “I lived five amazing years there with the fans, the Board, the environment…it was like a big family for me and my wife.

“Valencia have got great potential. Their squad is formed by world class players. At the Mestalla it won’t be easy for us, the tempo will be really high.

“Those games give you something more than normal, an amazing injection of adrenalin. I am expecting a spectacular clash.”
