Thiago Motta has accepted Genoa’s offer to become their new Coach, replacing Aurelio Andreazzoli.
Motta met Genoa on Monday afternoon, and Sky Sport Italia reports the deal is “all done” for the ex-Italy midfielder to take the reins.
Tuttomercatoweb, meanwhile, writes his appointment will become official tomorrow.
The 37-year-old played for the Rossoblu during the 2008-09 campaign, rebuilding his career as he earned future moves to Inter and Paris Saint-Germain.
He retired from professional football at the end of 17-18 and spent last season coaching PSG’s Under-19 team.
Although his tenure ended over the summer, it went viral after he spoke of his desire to adopt a 2-7-2 formation without a goalkeeper.
Motta will coach a Genoa side who have lost five of their last six games, resulting in Andreazzoli’s demise.
He may opt to promote U17 boss Roberto Murgita as he currently does not possess the qualifications needed to manage in Serie A.
