Bologna Yet to Take Action on Motta Renewal, Confirms Agent

It was exactly one year ago that Thiago Motta took hold of the Bologna dugout after moving from Spezia. And it doesn’t look like he would be leaving Emilia-Romagna anytime soon, as relayed by his agent Alessandro Canovi.

Canovi spoke to the microphones of BO TV (via Tuttomercatoweb) and shed light on Motta’s tenure so far at the Renato Dall’Ara.

“It was a full year, perhaps it counts more than one. It was full of emotions, character, and players who responded very well. The protagonist is not only Thiago, but all the people around him. A story worthy of being told, in every sense: in the negative, unfortunately, and in the good for what has been done on a sporting level.”

He then revealed the decision-making process that goes behind the scenes in the transfer market.

“Giovanni Sartori, Marco Di Vaio, Claudio Fenucci decided, but Thiago was involved too. The first name to put on the list is that of the president. We’d be talking about nothing without his economic capacity. The work was shared between everyone and we will see this team working now, hoping it brings satisfaction.”

“However, Thiago is not someone who seeks justifications, he has quality players and an interesting squad. Bologna got four points but playing against Juventus and Milan, two Scudetto candidates, in the first three matchdays, and faring well. Thiago is a builder, but then the protagonists are the players. His main strength is to convince them.”

Motta will see his Bologna contract expire at the end of the season. Canovi disclosed there haven’t been any negotiations yet of an extension.

“My job is to put the conditions my client concurs with on a piece of paper. This hasn’t started yet. We haven’t begun writing anything yet. We will have to find an agreement between Thiago and the president, then I will do my part. When they speak, we will have our indications.”

Motta has taken charge of 38 games for the Rossoblù so far, winning 16, drawing 10 and losing 12 in the process – registering a win percentage of 42.11% in the process. Bologna have experienced a mixed start to their season so far, winning, drawing, and losing a match each so far.
