Genoa have appointed Thiago Motta as their new head coach, in the former Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain midfielder’s first senior managerial role.
The Serie A side sacked Aurelio Andreazzoli after their 5-1 defeat by Parma last week and have turned to Motta, who spent a season playing for the club after leaving Atlético Madrid and before joining Inter Milan.
Motta, 37, has been coaching PSG’s Under-19 team since retiring in 2018.
Genoa currently sit 19th in the table, a point above bottom side Sampdoria.
“My idea it to play offensively. A short team that controls the game, high pressure and a lot of movement with and without the ball,” Motta told Gazetta dello Sport, as per Goal.
