Liverani will be given time at Genoa
On the 37-year-old’s coaching debut with the Rossoblu the side looked as though they had earned themselves an embarrassing defeat when Francesco Lodi’s 90th minute penalty made it 2-2, only to lose the resulting penalty shoot-out 3-2.
“I saw mistakes and problems that need to be resolved, but that is normal for August,” Preziosi told Gazzetta dello Sport.
“I also saw some good things out there.
“Liverani just needs some time and the final reinforcements to sort out the team, and he will have both of those.
“Do I have any doubts about Liverani? I will no longer tolerate that question. Liverani will remain here.
“He’s a good coach, one who I do not consider to be young.
“Doubting him would be like doubting me. Nobody offered or told me to get Liverani, I chose him because you only have to talk to him for a few minutes to understand that he knows everything about football.
