As expected, Italian first division team Genoa said goodbye to coach Andrei Shevchenko (45) on Saturday, who was only signed on November 7 last year. Former Ukrainian striker Shevchenko could not live up to the high expectations.
Recently, there were already media reports that 55-year-old ex-Bundesliga professional and coach Bruno Labbadia could become the new coach in Genoa. Sports director at Genoa is Johannes Spors. Pal Dardai (most recently Hertha BSC) was also traded in as the new coach for Serie A relegation candidates.
Initially, U17 coach Abdoulay Konko will provide the team as an interim solution. Former AC Milan and FC Chelsea striker Shevchenko had just won one match in 11 competitive matches with his side. Genoa has only 12 points in Serie A after 21 games.
Leverkusen Bundesliga professional and five-time national player Nadiem Amiri should also strengthen the squad in Genoa.
