In the first stage of this year's Super League, Beijing Guoan's performance was difficult to satisfy. Often leading by a big score and then tied, facing the group's only strong hand in Hong Kong suffered double kills, and another is the mental state of the team reflected in the game, are very bad. Under the concentrated outbreak of problems, Guoan only won the second place in the group. He turned on the Hard mode in advance, and met his rival Luneng in the first round of the knockout round.
Among the many problems that broke out in the first stage of the National Security, one of them was for the head coach. The outside world generally commented that there was a problem with Genesio's on-the-spot command, the substitution could not be understood, and he lacked bloodliness. Such a coach could not lead Guoan to fight for a Chinese Super League championship. Guoan fans once bombed Guoan's official Weibo, and all the messages asked Genesio to dismiss get out of class as soon as possible. Fans also cited a famous banner: Yulinjun patted Mr. Paire and said something soft.
In the first stage, there were also rumors of a coaching change, but the top of the club was quite supportive of Genesio. But by the beginning of September, Guoan had committed an old problem again and was tied by Drow while leading two goals. It is reported that if Guoan does not win again, Genesio's coaching position will be unstable. Fortunately, Guoan's performance was not satisfactory afterwards, and the negative news of being double-killed by SIPG was also overwhelmed by Zhang Lei's controversy and punishment. In the end, Guoan ended the first stage of the game with a 4-0 victory, securing the second place in the group, and Genesio's coaching position temporarily stabilized.
Genesio replaced Schmidt halfway through last year. Last season, Guoan played a wave of 10 consecutive victories, promising to compete for the league championship. But then it suffered a trough, coach Schmidt dismissed get out of class and Genesio took office, bringing Guoan to the runner-up position in the league. Since Reshuai took office, there seems to be a problem, but there is one thing he has done well and the key is that he has never lost to Luneng.
Genesio took office at the end of July last year and played against Luneng 3 times during his term. Lexus opponents 3-2 in 2019. In the first round of this season's knockout round, first two goals fell behind 2-2 to equalize, and then the second round came back 2-1 to win. The victory of this round is quite critical, otherwise Guoan's best result can only be fifth in the league, and I am afraid that we will not be able to touch the door of the AFC Champions League next season.
However, although Genesio has an excellent record against Luneng, Luneng has already been eliminated and waiting for them is Guangzhou Evergrande. Renezio led Guoan to fight against Evergrande once, losing 1-3 to the opponent. The future of Genesio's coaching position is also closely related to his next battle against Evergrande and the content of the scene.
