Genes takes over as Paraguay coach

Victor Genes has been given the task of taking over from Gerard Pelusso as Paraguay coach.

Paraguay are struggling in World Cup qualifying and are bottom of the league with eight points from 12 games.

"To speak of the career of Victor Genes is to talk about a coach who has achieved everything ... He is taking on the challenge for that reason and knows he is putting his career on the line because it comes at a very difficult time," Paraguayan Football Association (APF) vice-president Alejandro Dominguez told reporters.
