Genoa have recalled coach Alberto
Malesani after sacking Pasquale Marino, the faltering Serie A
club said in a statement on Monday.
Genoa lost 5-4 at Inter Milan on Sunday in Andrea
Stramaccioni's first game in charge of the hosts and have
slipped down to 16th in the table, six points above the drop
zone with eight games left.
Marino replaced Malesani in December but results got worse
for a side hoping to challenge for Europa League spots at the
beginning of the season.
Italian teams often bring back previously sacked coaches
because they remain on the payroll until their deals are paid up
and are therefore cheaper to employ than other candidates.
The pool of potential bosses is also limited by the fact
that coaches are only allowed to manage one Serie A team in a
season under league rules.
