Ivan Juric happy to be back with Genoa

Ivan Juric is happy to be back with Genoa.

Juric has stepped in after the sacking of Davide Ballardini.

“I'm happy to go back to doing the job I love at a team where I've done a lot," Juric said at his presentation today.

“It obviously gets you down when you're not working, we've got a very tough fixture list with the best teams all coming up in just a few games, but it's a great challenge.

“There's no desire for revenge, just the desire to work well. I want to be calm and do the best I can.

“I wasn't doing well in that time [when I was sacked] and without rancour I can say I wasn't doing the best in that period.

“In some games we were close to getting a result, but we didn't get many points. I have to recognise that, despite my desire, I didn't do a good job.

“When did I know I'd be back? Not long ago, I really didn't expect it.

“I'm not worried by anything but the upcoming fixtures, but they can provide us a boost too. All I've thought about is analysing the squad, everything has happened so quickly.

“I won't send any messages [to the fans], you need to get points, that's the life of a Coach. If you get points then everything is fine, if you don't then proclamations won't help."
