Aurelio Andreazzoli has been appointed as Genoa's new head coach, taking over from Cesare Prandelli.

Andreazzoli led Empoli back to Serie A in 2017-18, though was sacked in November of last year before taking over again in March.

However, the 65-year-old was unable to maintain Empoli's top-flight status, with Prandelli's Genoa staying up courtesy of a better head-to-head record.

But former Italy boss Prandelli's six-month stint at Stadio Luigi Ferraris has now been brought to an end, with Genoa's hierarchy handing Andreazzoli the job on a two-year deal.
