L’Équipe’s Giovanni Cusi is a man without a job, and that’s because he has one.
He’s been running the club since 2003, and it’s been a long journey for the 43-year-old, who has had a busy few months.
The club have been relegated in 2016, were last in the Champions League last season and missed out on a place in the Europa League last year.
Cusi, who spent three years as manager of AC Milan and the last three years at Inter, was appointed as the new boss of Genoa on December 2, 2016, after the board agreed to sell the club to Chinese group Anbang Insurance.
However, things did not go according to plan.
Genoa’s new owners decided to appoint Cusis as the team’s new boss in an attempt to make a profit on the investment, but the move has not gone as planned.
Genova finished third in Serie A last season, while Serie B finished seventh.
The club had already secured €50 million for the next two years, and they were set to go up for sale after the end of the season, with the sale price being €50.5 million, €42 million, or €32 million.
But on December 4, the board decided to sell all their shares to Anbang and buy the team for a much lower price of €24 million, which was the price of the team before the sale.
A week later, the club announced they were going to play in the Italian Super Cup against Lazio.
GenoApi had been in talks with Lazio since mid-February, but they have since postponed their trip to Italy.
“Genoa’s future is in my hands, but I’m not sure I will be able to make it happen,” Cusio said on December 10.
“We’re going to have to wait for Genoa to be sold to a consortium who will take the club from Serie A to the top, and I don’t know what they will offer.
Lazio have a lot of money, but Genoa are only €10 million.
They have to pay more for players than Genoa have for their players.
I’m a football fan, I like the Genoa, but this will not happen.
‘A great club, but a bit behind’The Genoa supporters have been angry since the sale, and the club has had to pay off their debts in a bid to pay their players in time.
On December 12, the new owner of Geno, Gianlucio Zamparini, confirmed that the club was going to be selling the players and that he would take Genoa into a new ownership.
There were some big names on the list, but Zampariini told reporters on the day that he is going to give Genoa a better chance.
This week, Genoa signed three players: Federico Marrone, the captain of Genova and a World Cup finalist, and goalkeeper Giuseppe Rossi.
Another Genoa player, Roberto D’Alessandro, will be on loan at Fiorentina this season.
As for Zamparrini, he said: “Genoa is a great club but it is behind in the league.
We’re going back into Serie B, we’re not going to win the league, we will struggle to get to the next level.”
It’s been the end for Genova, but there are many positives for the club.
Genoa won the Champions Leagues in 2015 and 2016, and in 2017, they went down in the Serie A. In the Serie B last season they finished in fifth place.
With the Geno deal, the Genova owners have a chance to take Genova to Serie A next season.
Genocino Di Francesco has been the club’s head coach since 2016, but it has been difficult to manage the club in the modern era.
Genoca’s last coach was Antonio Conte in 2015, and Conte also spent two seasons at the club, and he was sacked at the end the season.
It has been a difficult year for Genoca.
It had to sell some players to take a step forward in the transfer market, and this has not helped the Genocinos chances.
At the same time, Genocinhas a good reputation among fans, but Cusci is not satisfied with the club yet.
He is looking to bring in a better coach to manage Genoa.
