Alexander Blessin has called for courage from Genoa’s players as he takes charge.
Blessin arrives after Genoa bought out his contract from KV Oostende.
“My football is high-speed football and pressing. Genoa for me means a traditional club, big club, nine times champions of Serie A, crazy fans, positive fans, and all this makes this club so good,” Blessin told Genoa Channel.
“This situation needs the fans, the club, the staff, the team to work together and do everything to make the best out of this situation.
“We have at the moment nothing to lose, so this is showing the right mentality to come back.
“I want my players to show mentality, that they are willing to play our style of football and being ugly for any opponent.
“Every game is important, for sure, it’s only about three points, but I want grit on the pitch, for us to play ugly with the right mentality, speed, play forward and be aggressive in every moment.”
