Genoa to axe Juric already?

There are already reports that Genoa could fire Ivan Juric and bring in their third Coach of the season, either Davide Nicola or Cesare Prandelli.

President Enrico Preziosi was criticised by many fans and media outlets for his decision to sack Davide Ballardini on October 9.

Ballardini had amassed four wins and three defeats in Serie A this season when he was dismissed.

Since Juric took over, the Grifone have managed just two draws and back-to-back defeats, including Saturday’s humiliating 5-0 loss to Inter.

Now there are rumours circulating on Sportitalia and Tuttosport that Juric’s time could already be up.

It’s safe to say Juric has had a complicated relationship with Genoa President Preziosi, as he was first hired in the summer of 2016.

Sacked in February 2017, he returned in April 2017 only to be axed again in November 2017 to make way for Ballardini.

With Ballardini fired, Juric was appointed for a third time on October 9.

Among the options being considered by Genoa are former Crotone boss Davide Nicola and ex-Italy tactician Prandelli.
