Genoa President Enrico Preziosi assures Coach Pasquale Marino “is not at risk. In fact, I can only thank him.”
The tactician replaced Alberto Malesani over the Christmas break, but has struggled recently with three consecutive defeats and a 2-2 draw with Parma at the weekend.
“Of course he is not at risk, not even if we lose on Sunday,” declared the President.
“In fact, I can only thank him for accepting the job during such a difficult moment for the side. He was ready for the challenge, even knowing there could be problems.
“We must all be more balanced, as two games cannot change your judgment of a tactician.”
