Davide Ballardini has been appointed Genoa head coach for the third time in his career following the dismissal of Ivan Juric.

Croatian Juric was sacked on Sunday after Genoa lost 2-0 to bitter rivals Sampdoria a day prior, the defeat leaving them in the relegation zone.

The club have chosen Ballardini as his successor, with the 53-year-old to embark on his third spell at the club after back-to-back stints at Palermo.

He previously spent part of the 2010-11 campaign at Genoa, before returning for the second half of the 2012-13 season and saving them from relegation.

Ballardini’s first game in charge this time around will be at Crotone on November 19, with Roma travelling to Stadio Luigi Ferraris a week later for his home debut.
