In this interview between Serie A and Alexander Blessin, the manager speaks about his career and previews Genoa vs Cagliari, taking place on 24/04/2022.
Alexander Blessin: Background
48-year-old Blessin is currently the manager of Serie A side Genoa. He was appointed in January 2022 after a 6-0 loss to Fiorentina and has since overseen 11 fixtures, securing 10 points (1W-7D-3L) for the Grifone.
Upon his arrival, the German took the club on an eight-game unbeaten run, winning the support of the fans. Unfortunately, following his great run, Genoa then lost to Hellas Verona away and at home to Lazio, when, for the first time under Blessin, they conceded more than a goal.
After last week’s 2-0 defeat away to Milan, the Grifone currently sit six points behind Cagliari, who are the club that are just above them in the standings and that they are battling with to secure salvation.
Prior to joining Genoa, Blessin was in charge of Belgian First Division A side KV Oostende. He ended his spell at the club with a record of 26W-11D-28L over 65 matches in all competitions.
