Italian Club Genoa Fires Coach Maran After Slow Start

GENOA, Italy: Italian club Genoa fired coach Rolando Maran on Monday as the team remained stuck in the relegation zone following a 2-0 loss to Benevento.

Genoa has just one victory in 13 games this season in Serie A and was in 19th place as it prepared to play at Spezia on Wednesday.

In a brief statement, the team said the 57-year-old Italian coach had been fired.

The club thanks the coach and his staff for their commitment, it said.

In the 2013-14 season, Maran was fired twice by the same club Catania.
