After his experience at Genoa, the former midfielder restarts from the Spezia bench in Serie A. The retirement will be essential to establish form and first tactical indications, in this complicated start to the season for the Ligurian club
A complicated start to the season for Spezia who had to suddenly greet Vincenzo Italiano, who moved to Fiorentina despite having renewed with the Bianconeri, and had to cope with the Covid-19 outbreak that upset the preparation of the Eagles. Thiago Motta, former leader of the midfield of Inter and Barcelona, has landed on the Ligurian bench for his second experience as a coach in the Italian league after the brief spell at Genoa a year and a half ago.
After a brilliant international career, the Italian-Brazilian coach started coaching, first in the PSG youth teams, then in Serie A, with Genoa. A short experience, lasting a few games in the 2019-2020 season. Now the new opportunity to sit on a Serie A bench by marrying the Spezia project, eager to maintain the category for the second consecutive season after the great salvation gained in the last championship. The Ligurian club has profoundly changed, given that the Bianconeri greeted Italian, moved to Fiorentina, and some great protagonists of last year’s salvation such as Pobega, Saponara, Agudelo, Agoumé, Estevez, Farias and Piccoli returned to their respective teams.
The withdrawal will be fundamental to establish the form and first indications in a fantasy football perspective, even if with the Covid-19 outbreak which involved 14 registered players and staff members, it made the growth path difficult. Without forgetting the transfer market, with the sword of Damocles of the block imposed by FIFA (2-year disqualification) starting from January. But the company, on this front, is very active and, shortly, will formalize several grafts coming from Atalanta and which can strengthen the median and attack (Reca, Colley, Kovalenko and Piccoli). Who has already introduced himself to the new teammates is Amian, a French side from Toulouse who can also play in the heart of the rearguard. Thiago Motta will propose a football that is certainly proactive and that can give bonuses in bunches. At the moment the most interesting names from a fantasy football perspective remain Maggiore, Verde and Nzola. Should they remain (the streets of the transfer market are endless) they are undoubtedly the players to be snatched from the auction.
