Genoa meet Thiago Motta

Genoa are meeting Thiago Motta this afternoon with a view to hiring their former midfielder as Aurelio Andreazzoli’s successor.

Andreazzoli’s number looks to be up after a 5-1 thrashing at the hands of Parma yesterday.

Now, Tuttomercatoweb reports talks are taking place in Milan between Motta and Genoa owner Enrico Preziosi.

The summit has been made possible by the ex-Inter man currently studying at the Coverciano centre of excellence, which is also in northern Italy.

With that in mind, the 37-year-old could agree a deal to become the Rossoblu’s new boss as early as today.

However, he would need to be assisted by someone with a licence to coach in Serie A – seemingly Genoa U17 boss Roberto Murgita at this stage.

The club have turned to the Italo-Brazilian, who last coached Paris Saint-Germain’s Under-19 team, after Gennaro Gattuso rejected them.

Massimo Carrera and, to a lesser extent, Francesco Guidolin are also being considered.
