Roly delivers a loan player
“If you introduce a player it can take him a number of weeks – depending on the character, type, position and relationship with the coaches – to adapt and integrate. It’s not such a good idea to do too many loans”
And what do we get as a parting gift from Roly? A loan player. A right back who has not played since last May. No doubting Marco Motta’s resume but he has always struggled for game time especially at Juventus where he rarely played in 5 years. Watford came to his rescue, probably due to a Udinese connection, and Motta played 9 games during the whole of Watford’s promotion season with them using him more on the right side of midfield.
29-years old and a little left field and why we need another right back, only Jose or Duchatelet know, but Motta hardly sets the pulses running especially after a disappointing window. Interestingly Motta was training at QPR and they were assessing his fitness before he signed. He never signed.
Anyway he wasn’t undisclosed, which was a first. Motta signed until the end of the season on a free.
