Riding high from his exploits, Motta inked a three-year contract with the Old Lady, taking the reins at Allianz Stadium as Allegri’s successor after the latter was axed on May 17.

Allegri’s discharge was prompted right after Juventus’s victory in the Coppa Italia finale against Atalanta, owing much to his conduct during the match.

Post his decision to quit Bologna—where he catalyzed a remarkable climb to fifth in Serie A and clinched a debut Champions League berth for the club—Motta was promptly pegged for the Juventus job.

Following the official reveal this Wednesday, the 41-year-old expressed eagerness to dive into his new role.

“I’m thrilled to kick off this fresh saga at the helm of such a storied club as Juventus,” he declared on the club’s official portal.

“Heartfelt thanks to the top brass for their trust, and they should expect nothing less than my all-out effort to uphold the Juventus standard and delight our supporters,” he added.

Though Misset at his first shot as head honcho at Genoa in 2019, Motta rebounded splendidly by guiding Spezia to league survival during his sole season there prior to his stint with Bologna.
