Dario Canovi: “Napoli Refused Thiago Motta”
The agent of Inter treble hero Thiago Motta, Dario Canovi, spoke to the radio show Fuori Gara regarding how his client ended up at Inter, revealing that it was very close that the Italian international could have played for Napoli instead.
“Genoa offered Thiago Motta to Napoli, but the Pertenopei were influenced by the voices of someone who told them that Thiago was finished as a player due to injuries and that his knee was destroyed. Instead, Thiago won everything the following years: starting with the treble at Inter before continuing on hording trophies at Paris Saint-Germain.”
In conclusion Canovi shed some light in Motta’s plans for the future: “Today he is happy in Paris and has a good relationship with the club. It is a relationship of complete understanding, respect and friendship. Also Thiago has no intentions to leave the club at all.”
Thiago Motta featured 83 times for the Nerazzurri during his 2,5 year stint at the club scoring 13 times to help secure 5 titles, including the famous treble in 2010.
