Genoa president Enrico Preziosi has revealed that the club have fired coach Luigi De Canio, following their 4-2 home loss against Roma at the weekend.
The match saw the Ligurian side take a 2-0 lead by the 15 minute mark, but the men from the Italian capital were then able to turn the match in their favour, eventually winning 4-2.
The Gli Salami officials have already named former Juventus coach Luigi Delneri as the new replacement.
"At this time it was right to change. I immediately hired Delneri because I was afraid he was going to go somewhere else. Reinforcements will arrive in January," 64-year-old Preziosi told ANSA.
The Griffin currently sit ninth in Serie A.
