“Only if it’s Remi. Otherwise, this is not possible”
Genesio said: “Remi is a friend with whom I share the same football more convictions. It was always in the back of my head the idea of working with him again someday.
“I have no written clause in my senior coaching contract that ends in late June.
“If there is a qualification for a European Cup, whatever it is, I have a verbal agreement that it would be renewed. Otherwise, I have a three year contract as assistant.”
Asked if he could revert to being assistant again, Genesio said: “Only if it’s Remi. Otherwise, this is not possible.”
There was more bad news for Villa yesterday after the club announced a loss of £27m for the year up to May 2015.
