Coach Gian Piero Gasperini

Gian Piero Gasperini is back at Genoa for a second spell. The 56-year-old, who started out with Juventus’ Giovanissimi, Allievi and Primavera before joining Crotone, led the Grifone into the Europa League during his previous stint in charge, with his exciting 3-4-3 system earning widespread plaudits.

After five years at Genoa, he was sacked in November 2010, but his good work hadn’t gone unnoticed and Inter chose to appoint him in June 2011. Despite initial excitement, the move quickly soured and he was sacked after just three months. Gasperini’s next role would come at struggling Palermo in September 2012, but he was sacked, reappointed and sacked again by March.
