Serie A's leading scorer Krzysztof Piatek admits he utilised Fifa 19 to discover out about his new teammates9
Krzysztof Piatek has created an impressive start off to life in Serie A Possessing joined Genoa from KS Cracovia in the summer, Piatek has scored nine time in the Italian top flight to date and is at the moment the highest scorer in the league.
In an interview with Corriere Della Sera, the Polish forward has place his explosive begin at Genoa down to getting relatively unknown when he arrived.
"None of my teammates knew me," he explains. "I said to myself: 'If they do not understand that I've scored 21 targets and scored in virtually every single game, possibly even the defenders won't know me.' Getting a stranger in the bottom has offered me an benefit."
The 23-year-old has also admitted that he was also unfamiliar with his new teammates when he arrived in Italy. In order to discover far more about them and their qualities around the field, he reveals that he looked them up on FIFA 19.
"I had no concept who my teammates at Genoa have been when I signed, so I turned on my PlayStation and looked them up on FIFA."
Even though Piatek made a powerful start off towards the campaign, the objectives have dried up in recent matches. Because Davide Ballardini was sacked by club president Enrico Preziosi last month - around the grounds that he was a "terrible coach" - he hasn't scored a single objective, last finding the net as Poland lost a Uefa Nations League match against Portugal.
Now with Croatian manager Ivan Juri? at the helm, Genoa's last outing saw them thrashed 5-0 at the hands of Inter Milan in the San Siro, a result which leaves them 14th.
