The past campaign was a troublesome one for Genoa, as they only managed to achieve safety in the very last week, on goal difference with relegated Empoli. Davide Ballardini had actually started very well, 12 points in 7 games, but he was mysteriously replaced by a disastrous Ivan Juric and, eventually, Cesare Prandelli, who brought home just 4 wins out of 24 games.. Not too surprisingly, volcanic President Preziosi opted for the umpteenth overhaul over the summer, giving the reins to Aurelio Andreazzoli, a seasoned coach who had worked as tactician with Spalletti for a long time, whose most recent Serie A experience was relegation with Empoli last May. Genoa squad needed to be trimmed and several players were subsequently let go. Among them, Veloso, Rossettini, Zukanovic, Bessa and Lazovic, who were all starters at some point, but also Lapadula or Pereira, who had run out of favour with the coaches. In fact, they also sold to Juventus the best defender of the past campaign, Romero, but they managed to sign the young talent back on loan. And that might be their best signing too. They added to the defence an experienced and valid centre-back in Zapata, while they strengthened the flanks considerable with Romulo, returning from a short stint at Lazio, and Barreca, on loan from Monaco. Schone should be an interesting defending midfielder, while Cassata should also be given a relevant role in the middle of the park. The attack was their weakest department last season: Saponara, a talented player who has failed to repeat the wonders displayed in his early years at Empoli, and Pinamonti, on loan from Inter after being relegated with Frosinone, should be the new protagonists, together with Kouame, a skilled but inconsistent forward.

Target


Genoa should be achieving a quiet salvation if President Preziosi does not interfere with Andreazzoli’s work and if they manage to acquire a prolific striker and another couple of players for the midfield.

Season Review
2018/2019

№17: Genoa

After employing three different managers over the course of the season, Genoa eventually stumbled over the finish line to survival on the final day. Davide Ballardini and Ivan Juric continued to play a strange game of "hot potato" with the Genoa manager's job. Ballardini started the campaing in charge after securing survival last season and made a great start with 4 wins from the first 6 games. It quickly turned sour though and club president Enrico Preziosi's dismissed him for the third time in October - going as far as to call him a "terrible coach". Inexplicably though, Preziosi rehired Juric for a third stint in charge and almost inevitably the Croatian didn't last very long - failing to win any of his 8 games in charge. Former national team boss Cesare Prandelli was the Grifone's third and final coach of the season. He produced a good run of form for the club in the first 3 months of 2019 - highlighted by becoming the first team in Serie A to beat Juventus this season - but that turned out to be their final league victory. Just 5 points from their last 10 games saw them crawl to safety. Krzysztof Piatek was only at Genoa for the first half of the season but his impact cannot be denied. 19 goals in 21 appearances brought about a €35 million transfer to Milan in Janaury. A huge profit for Genoa off the pitch but a massive loss on it. They struggled to replace his goals and haven't yet used the funds from his sale well enough. There are strong rumours that Prandelli will leave his position in the summer which means yet another new coach for Genoa. Leonardo Semplici has been linked but whoever it is, the Grifone faithful will be hoping for some sense of stability.
