What Juventus-linked Thiago Motta said about his Bologna future

Motta is the most likely candidate to succeed the sacked Massimiliano Allegri in Turin.

Bologna coach Thiago Motta refused to clarify his future at Reggio Emilia after the dramatic 3-3 draw with Juventus on Monday.

Thiago Motta's test did not end as it began after Bologna squandered a three-goal lead against Juventus without their Nigeria-qualified striker.

A Riccardo Calafiore brace and a Santiago Castro header put the Rossoblu 3-0 ahead, but the Old Lady scored three goals in eight minutes through Federico Chiesa, Arkadiusz Milik and Kenan Yildiz to send the hosts back to the Dallara Stadium.

With this result, Bologna is equal to Juventus with 68 points before the final day, and the third-placed team guarantees qualification for the Champions League for the first time under the leadership of the 2010 winner with Inter.

However, they may have to do without the Argentine.

What Motta said about the rumors Juventus, Bologna will stay

Motta is expected to leave for Juventus at the end of the season, which has been confirmed by reports indicating a meeting between the Bianconeri and the Bologna coach.

Juventus have sacked Massimiliano Allegri over his behavior after the club's Coppa Italia win, with the former Inter midfielder likely to replace the departing Italian.

“We will talk about the future with the president and what we decide together will be announced,” a shy Motta told DAZN. “This is the right moment to celebrate and carry on this positive energy.

“We have had a great season, and we have put together a great group where everyone is making their contribution, ensuring that the team can play like this and get these results. This is a great day of celebration for Bologna and we should enjoy it together.”

Bologna will ensure a higher Serie A finish than Juventus by equaling the Old Lady's result on the final day, even if they could drop to fourth if Atalanta have their matches.
