Malta women’s player Maya Lucia will have a new coach at Genoa Women as the Serie B side appointed former player Antonio Filippini in charge of the team.
Filippini, a former Genoa player himself, will take over from Marco Oneto who was dismissed from his post following the poor start to their second-tier campaign in Italy.
As a player, Filippini played 303 games in Serie A while featuring in 176 Serie B games as well. He is mostly remembered together with twin brother Emanuele during their playing days.
After hanging up his boots, Antonio coached Lumezzane, Trento, Livorno and Pro Sesto in the men’s game before switching to women’s football.
Genoa clinched promotion to the Serie B last season but have found the going tough so far with 8 points after 12 games as they sit third from bottom.
Lucia joined the club during the summer transfer window from Raiders Lija and has played six matches for Genoa Women so far.
Genoa’s next league game is against Hellas Verona Women, on January 15.
