Genoa have officially appointed Alberto Malesani as their new Coach on a one-year contract.
It had been known for some time that former Bologna boss Malesani had been chosen to replace Davide Ballardini.
He beat competition from Delio Rossi to take the job, but President Enrico Preziosi delayed the formal announcement.
This evening the news was confirmed on the official Genoa website.
Malesani has signed a one-year contract with an option for a second term.
