Malesani to take Genoa job

Alberto Malesani is set to be unveiled as the new Coach of Genoa on Monday, beating competition from Delio Rossi.

President Enrico Preziosi took time out to make his final decision on who would replace Davide Ballardini for next season.

Former Palermo tactician Rossi was the favourite for a while, but according to reports over the past few days, he turned down the proposal.

Malesani is a free agent after walking away from Bologna, who he kept in Serie A despite a three-point penalty and the threat of bankruptcy hanging over the club.

Domenico Criscito's agent will reportedly talk with Napoli today after the San Paolo outfit agreed a deal with Genoa.

The Rossoblu have accepted the Azzurri's €6m offer for a share in the player and the move looks to be on.

However, Andrea D'Amico knew relatively little about the negotiations when he was contacted by TMW last night.

"I know that Napoli are interested in the player, but I've not spoken in depth with them about the possibility of a transfer," he stated.

Criscito to Napoli will take time

Genoa's Domenico Criscito won't start discussing personal terms with Napoli until at least the start of next week.

The Azzurri have agreed to sign a 50 per cent share in the Italian international for €6m after talks between the two outfits.

However, speaking to Radio CRC, the former Juventus player's agent insists the deal isn't done just yet.

"The fact that the two clubs have agreed is a good sign, but you need the acceptance of the player in order to conclude a transfer," Andrea D'Amico noted.
