Preziosi: Motta will surprise everyone

Genoa President Enrico Preziosi believes Thiago Motta will “surprise everyone” as the club’s Coach.

Motta will be formalised as Aurelio Andreazzoli’s successor later today, but his appointment at Genoa is seen as something of a gamble, given he has only previously coached Paris Saint-Germain’s Under-19 team.

“He has clear ideas and great quality,” Preziosi told Il Secolo XIX

“I’m sure he’ll surprise everyone. He has the same grit from when he was a player. He’s someone with 13 balls.

“He knows Genoa well, he’s seen all our games: he knows what needs to be done to revive this team.”
