In what is surely an unprecedented move, Lazio striker Sculli has admitted he will be supporting the opposition on Sunday. Sculli is a Genoa native and has been frozen out at Lazio but still raised eyebrows with the directness of his comments.

"Who will I support on Sunday? There is no need to even ask, Genoa is my home and always remain the most important experience of my career. It will always be my home. I'm cheering for Genoa. The fans love me and I want them."

Sculli has been out of Lazio's plans for a few years as he has been passed back and forth between Lazio and Genoa, with the latter failing to take up his full ownership.

"I've had a few offers in recent months but I was going to earn less than what I make now at Lazio. At 33 years old I do not have the desire to give up part of my salary. Lazio did not want to contribute so it's no problem. I train waiting for a return to play."

When asked if he could feature on Sunday, Sculli replied:

"No, I have nothing to do here anymore, I'll be watching as a Genoa fan but this will not be my game. I just have to wait for the right opportunity and continue to train as I have done so far because I want to carry on for a few more years."
