Official: Genoa change director of sport

Genoa have officially parted company with director of sport Francesco Marroccu after just nine months, suggesting another revolution at the club.

President Enrico Preziosi threatened radical changes to the hierarchy after scraping Serie A safety on the final day of the season.

Despite Davide Nicola leading them to a surge up the standings to leave Lecce behind, the coach is by no means sure of his place on the bench.

Director of sport Marroccu had only arrived in December to replace Stefano Capozucca, but he too has now terminated his contract by mutual consent.

A statement released by Genoa made clear it was a shared decision.

The Grifone went through three coaches this season, going from Aurelio Andreazzoli to Thiago Motta and Nicola.
