After just two Serie A rounds, rumours already suggest Genoa will sack Fabio Liverani to bring in Andrea Stramaccioni.
Liverani has no experience of coaching senior players, as he had just one year in charge of the Genoa youth academy side.
Having gone out of the Coppa Italia at the first hurdle against Spezia, Genoa then lost both Serie A games against Inter and Fiorentina, conceding seven goals and scoring two.
According to Sport Mediaset, President Enrico Preziosi is already considering a change on the Marassi bench.
Liverani could be sacked if he suffers another defeat in the Genoa Derby against Sampdoria.
The hot favourite to take over is Stramaccioni, who had been very close to getting the job before it was handed to Liverani.
Stramaccioni is available after Inter sacked him in May.
