Gigi De Canio has been sacked by Genoa after the Rossoblu threw away a two-goal lead in the game against Roma.
The Marassi outfit went 2-0 up inside the first 15 minutes last night, but the Giallorossi fought back to collect a memorable 4-2 win.
The defeat didn’t sit comfortably with President Enrico Preziosi who has today opted to show the tactician the door.
Former Sampdoria and Juventus boss Gigi Del Neri will replace De Canio – who saved the club from relegation last season – at the Ferraris.
Del Neri hasn’t worked since he was replaced by Antonio Conte in Turin during the summer of 2011.
Genoa are joint ninth in the table thanks to nine points from a possible 24.
