Frey in parting shot at Viola

French goalkeeper Sebastien Frey has fired a parting shot at former club Fiorentina following his move to Genoa.

Frey signed a five-year contract with Il Grifone on Tuesday after being frozen out at the Stadio Artemio Franchi, and has declared himself proud to end his career in Liguria.

The 31-year-old told the club's official website: ''I wish to thank the people of Florence and the Viola fans. I also hold much affection for my former team-mates. But I hope to never again see football terms like 'loving the jersey' or 'the flag'. My own story has proved that these concepts are often used just to create a narrative.''

On his new club, he added: ''I signed a five-year contract, so it's likely this will be my final professional club. I would be proud to end my career at Genoa. There are many reasons I chose Genoa. First of all, the president Enrico Preziosi, who wanted me.

''I've often thought of him as the club president with the best knowledge of Italian football. There's a leadership here that brings out the best in young talent and revives players' careers. That's hugely important for a professional like me. I've joined one of the oldest clubs in Italy, where the fans live football passionately. I will fight with everything I've got to leave a big impression.''
