Malesani to take Genoa job

Alberto Malesani confirms he will be the new Genoa Coach. “We'll entertain fans with attacking 3-4-3 football.”

The former Bologna boss is set to be unveiled on Monday by President Enrico Preziosi, replacing Davide Ballardini on the bench.

“We'll entertain the fans, as I play attacking football,” Malesani told La Repubblica newspaper.

“We will use the 3-4-3 system, as you can guarantee Genoa will take the game to their opponents.”

It's reported one of the tactical keys is midfielder Blerim Dzemaili, who is currently co-owned by Parma and Torino.

They face a battle, though, as the 25-year-old Switzerland international is also a primary transfer target for Napoli.
