“It’s not OK” – Man United SLAMMED by Serie A director for INEOS’ recent actions



| Last Updated:


Manchester United have been slammed by Bologna director Claudio Fenucci for their reported interest in manager Thiago Motta.

INEOS are said to be looking at potentially replacing Erik ten Hag as Manchester United manager this summer following poor results in the Premier League and Champions League.

Many managers are being considered as potential options for the Old Trafford club, one of which is Bologna’s Thiago Motta.

Motta, former PSG, Inter Milan, and Atletico Madrid midfielder, is out of contract this summer and has guided Bologna to fight for Champions League places next season.

However, recent rumours surrounding Motta, heavily fueled by INEOS and Juventus’ reported interest, have angered Bologna’s director, Claudio Fenucci, who feels they are creating a continuous noise around the club.

“I am not OK with it”

Both United and Juventus have been linked with Motta, and speaking about this interest, Fenucci recently told Radio Serie A: “Thiago is working like he had a long-term contract with us. It’s not a problem that he hasn’t yet confirmed his journey with us for the coming years.

“What bothers me a little is the continuous rumours and the noise around our players. I am not OK with it. We are a strong club, one of the most solid in Serie A and we don’t want to change this group in the future.

“It’s very annoying to see many of our players linked with other clubs, it’s not a nice feeling. However, I am sure this has a limited effect on them as they are all focused on our target and happy to be at Bologna.

“Our club is solid financially, thanks to our owner. We have long-term plans for the club’s growth, sporting results, and organisation. We have a long-term vision and financial solidity to continue on this journey.

“We are in the race with clubs that aim for a Champions League placement every year; their revenues allow them to plan for the future with these sorts of targets.”
