SACKED! Andriy Shevchenko dumped by Genoa

Genoa have sacked coach Andriy Shevchenko just two months into the job.

The former Ukraine manager was only appointed at the struggling Serie A club 69 days ago but experiencced just one win during a troubled tenure.

Prior to his appointment, Genoa had secured just one victory of their opening 12 matches in the Italian top-flight under Davide Ballardini.

Shevchenko was tasked with reviving the club's fortunes and steering them clear of the drop zone but he departs with them five points adrift of safety and no on a 20-match winless Serie A run.

He was brought in by the club's new American owners, which bought the club earlier this season.
