Genoa set to fire coach coach Malesani



Troubled Serie A side Genoa were set to dismiss coach Alberto Malesani for the second time this season in the wake of a 4-1 defeat suffered against Siena at the weekend.

The seaside club announced on Monday on their website that a change of coach was to be announced later in the day.

Luigi De Canio was expected to replace Malesani after a home drubbing on Sunday that left the seaside club one point clear of the three-team drop zone with five games left.

Malesani was fired in December after 16 games and replaced by Pasquale Marino, but the seaside club called him back in early April, eight games from the end of the season.

De Canio coached Genoa already in the 2003-04 season, when he took over from Roberto Donadoni.

Genoa face a pitch ban after hooligans on Sunday caused the game with Siena to be interrupted at the Luigi Ferraris Stadium.
