HOW BOLOGNA AND THIAGO MOTTA CAN MAKE HISTORY IN SERIE A THIS SEASON

There has been a takeover, four seasons in the second tier and two promotions since the last time Bologna played in
Europe.

Few will even remember the club’s run to the final of 2002 Intertoto Cup as the Rossoblu target a Champions League
place in the final stretch of a remarkable campaign.

From financial ruin and the depths of Serie B there is now the genuine prospect of Bologna competing against the
continent’s elite next term.

The Emilia-Romagna club can round off an exceptional season if they remain in fourth position with just nine games left.

From the steady leadership of owner Joey Saputo, expert recruitment of technical director Giovanni Sartori and Thiago
Motta’s masterful coaching, the Bologna revival has been a collaborative union built on a model of financial prudence.

Canadian businessman Saputo – who assumed control of the club in October 2014 – has made numerous off the field
changes without plunging the Rossoblu into debt with lavish signings.

Instead Sartori, who worked wonders at Atalanta, has scoured the globe to bring value for money buys and cost-
effective loans to Stadio Renato Dall’Ara.READ MORE

In his first full season in charge Motta has moulded a multi-talented squad into an unremitting, industrious unit. There
was a degree of risk when Saputo appointed the former Inter midfielder in September 2022 after mixed coaching spells
at Genoa and Spezia.

Yet the 41-year-old has managed to turn his fault-finders into admirers with a spirited charge into the top four.

The Brazilian-born former Italy international was known for his tenacity and perseverance in a glittering playing career
and has shaped a team with a never-say-die attitude.
