Genoa admit they considered Luis Enrique for their coaching position in the summer.
Enrique is battling to turn things around at AS Roma.
â€śLuis Enrique was suggested to us, but we couldnâ€™t reach an agreement with him,â€ť sporting director Stefano Capozucca told Forza Roma.
â€śI consider him to be a valid Coach and Roma made an excellent choice.
â€śDespite the initial difficulties, which were to be expected, Roma will return to the higher echelons of the League.â€ť
