Surprise candidates for Genoa job

Ivan Juric could be fired if Genoa lose the Derby della Lanterna to Sampdoria, with four potential candidates to replace him.

He was only brought in for sacked Davide Ballardini last month, his third stint at the club.

According to Tuttosport, the tactician is facing dismissal if he loses the high-profile derby against their bitter city rivals on Sunday.

There are four main candidates to take over and some of the names are rather surprising.

Alternatives include ex-Italy boss Cesare Prandelli and former Udinese Coach Igor Tudor.

More intriguing options are former Parma midfielder Sabri Lamouchi and ex-Genoa player John van’t Schip.

Van’t Schip played over 100 games for Genoa between 1992 and 1996.

He was the Coach of clubs including Melbourne Heart, Guadalajara, Melbourne City and current side PEC Zwolle.
