Luigi Del Neri introduced as Genoa's new coach


GENOA, Italy (AP) -Luigi Del Neri has been presented as Genoa's new coach, a day after Luigi De Canio was fired.

Del Neri says "Genoa is a big squad and has everything it needs to perform well."

The switch comes following a 4-2 loss to Roma in the Serie A on Sunday, and ahead of a visit to AC Milan this weekend.

Genoa led Roma 2-0 after just 15 minutes but went on to lose 4-2. The Ligurian club is tied for ninth place, 13 points behind leader Juventus.

Del Neri has coached Chievo Verona, Roma and most recently Juventus in 2010-11. He also guided Genoa's other club, Sampdoria, in 2009-10, and therefore becomes the sixth coach to manage both teams.

It's the fourth coaching change in the Serie A this season.
