Del Neri opens Genoa door

Gigi Del Neri would be tempted by a return to coaching with Genoa after being linked with the Marassi hotseat.

The tactician knows the city well having bossed rivals Sampdoria in 2009-10 before joining Juventus for one season.

“There are teams with important expectations for the new campaign and Genoa are among them,” he told Pianeta Genoa 1893.

“Genoa, like other cities, would be a nice choice, but you need two people to agree to work together…”

Del Neri has been out of the game for a year after being replaced in Turin by Antonio Conte, a man who led the Old Lady to the Scudetto this season.

“I’ve had enough of a break now,” the ex-Chievo, Porto and Roma Coach added. “My batteries have been recharged and I’m ready to go.”

Genoa were bossed by Gigi De Canio in the last few weeks of the campaign and he kept them in the top flight.

Del Neri, according to the Gazzetta dello Sport, is in pole position for the Marassi job ahead of Delio Rossi and Zdenek Zeman.
