Genoa have sacked Andriy Shevchenko just two months after naming the great Milan as head coach.
The Ukrainian was hired to replace Davide Ballardini on November 7, where his appointment was one of the first major decisions made by the club’s new ownership group.
Shevchenko had left his role as Ukraine’s coach in August, after taking his country beyond the group stage of a European Championship for the first time in their history at the 2020 European Championships.
However, Genoa’s form has not shown signs of improvement under the former Chelsea and Milan striker.
In nine Serie A matches, Shevchenko did not preside over a single victory – they collected three points and as many goals in that time.
His only victory in the lead came via a flimsy 1-0 success over Salernitana in the Coppa Italia last month.
It was thought that Genoa’s performance in the 3-1 defeat in extra time to Milan in Coppa on Thursday could have given him more time.
But these reports ultimately proved to be inaccurate as to where his former trampoline San Siro was, where his fate was decided.
The Genoa Cfc communicates that the technician Andriy #Shevchenko is a statue solved from the incarceration. The Club calls the alternator and his staff to work hard with power during these months.
