Report: Genoa sack Malesani

There are reports that Genoa will sack Alberto Malesani for the second time this season to bring in Gigi De Canio.

President Enrico Preziosi was furious after today’s 4-1 home defeat to Siena, which left them only one point clear of the relegation zone and was marred by a fan protest that suspended the game for 40 minutes.

According to Sky Sport Italia, Coach Malesani is paying the price for the setback and will be fired to make way for ex-Lecce Coach De Canio.

Malesani had started the season at Genoa, was fired after a 6-1 defeat to Napoli in December and recalled on April 2 to replace Pasquale Marino.

The squad is currently in a pre-match training camp to prepare for Wednesday’s trip to Milan.
