Rome (Reuters)

Italian football club Genoa announced the dismissal of their Ukrainian coach Andriy Shevchenko, but two months after he took over the coaching staff of the relegated team.
Shevchenko, the former Ukraine player and coach, was linked with Genoa on a contract that runs until 2024 on the seventh of last November, but the team’s defeat in extra time against his former team Milan in the Italian Cup last Thursday, precipitated his departure after a series of poor results.
The club said in a statement: “The club thanks the coach and his support staff for the hard work they have done over the last few months.”
After the dismissal, the club temporarily gave the task of coaching the first team to former player Abdullah Konko, coach of the youth team, while Roberto Morgueta works as his assistant.
In its next match in the Italian league, Genoa will meet Fiorentina outside their stadium next Monday.
Genoa did not win any of the nine matches it played in the local league led by Shevchenko, drawing in three and losing in six of them, falling to 19th and penultimate place among the championship teams, five points after. the safety zone.
The team performed somewhat better in the Italian Cup, defeating Salernitana 1-0 last December and knocking him out of the tournament, making this the only victory for coach Shevchenko before the team lost 3-1 in extra time against Milan in the round of 16.
