Veteran frontman Goran Pandev fired Genoa to a surprising 2-1 victory over Napoli on Saturday night, to be named Serie A Player of the Week for Round 21.

The Grifone have seen a major improvement since Davide Ballardini returned as coach and two goals from the Bulgarian at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris saw them rise to 12th in the table.

There was an element of good fortune for Pandev’s first on 11 minutes, when a sloppy pass from the visitors gifted Milan Badelj the ball to slide in the 37-year-old, who hit a perfectly placed low drive home.

Just 10 minutes later the ex-Inter attacker stuck again, controlling a low ball and turning expertly 12 yards from goal and powering a shot past Partenopei goalkeeper David Ospina.
