Andriy Shevchenko is legendary in Italy. As a coach, he has now crash-landed there. He has to vacate his place at CFC Genoa. A German should probably take his place.
As expected, the Italian first division club CFC Genoa parted ways with coach Andriy Shevchenko on Saturday, who was only signed on November 7 last year. The former world-class Ukrainian striker for AC Milan failed to live up to the high expectations.
Recently there had already been media reports that the 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 as the new coach for Serie A relegation candidates.
Initially, U17 coach Abdoulay Konko will look after the team as an interim solution. The 45-year-old Shevchenko had only won one game in eleven competitive games with his team. Genoa have only twelve points in Serie A after 21 games.
