‘Genoa vs Milan will be a special game for Shevchenko’ – Paolo Maldini

AC Milan technical director Paolo Maldini believes Rossoneri’s Serie A clash with Genoa will be special for his former teammate and now Genoa coach Andriy Shevchenko.

AC Milan

will try to get back on track when they travel to

Genoa

on Wednesday night for a match at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris.

The visitors are coming to this match after back-to-back defeats to

Fiorentina

and

Sassuolo

, while Genoa and

Andriy Shevchenko

are in need of a win in order to get out of the relegation zone.

Andriy Shevchenko meets Milan for the first time as a coach and

Paolo Maldini

knows the importance of the game for the Ukrainian coach.

“Sheva and Tassotti are an important part of Milan’s history. I am sure it will be a special game for them,”

Maldini

told

Sky Sport Italia

before the kick-off

.

The former striker was appointed Genoa coach during the break and

Mauro Tassotti

is his assistant coach.

“It won’t be an easy game for us, we need to remain focused as we’ve been for a year and a half,”

said

Maldini

.

“We need a fresh start, we are strong but with many injuries, like many other clubs. We have room for improvement, especially in managing mental energies in important games, but it takes time.

“We know we have done important things, but we can’t be satisfied.”
