Juventus Appoint Thiago Motta as New Manager

In a significant move for the football world, Italian club Juventus have appointed former Bologna boss Thiago Motta as their new manager. The 41-year-old, who previously played for Italy and Juventus’ Serie A rivals Inter Milan as a midfielder, has signed a three-year deal that will keep him at the helm until June 2027.

Motta’s appointment comes as a replacement for Massimiliano Allegri, who was sacked just two days after leading the side to the Italian Cup. During his tenure at Bologna, Motta oversaw the club’s impressive qualification for the UEFA Champions League, as they finished fifth in the Serie A table last season.

“I am really happy to begin a new chapter at the helm of a great club like Juventus,” said Motta. “I thank the owners and the management, who can be sure of my ambition to keep the Juventus flag flying high and to please the fans.”

Motta’s playing career saw him represent several notable European clubs, including Barcelona, Atletico Madrid, Genoa, and Paris Saint-Germain, where he ultimately ended his playing days before transitioning into coaching. He initially worked with the youth side of PSG before moving into the backroom staff at Genoa and then taking the head coaching role at Spezia and Bologna.

This strategic appointment by Juventus marks a new era for the club, as they look to build on their recent success and challenge for top honors in the upcoming seasons, including the Euro 2024, Champions League, and FIFA World Cup competitions.
