OFFICIALLY OFFICIAL: Marco Motta heads to Genoa on loan

Valerio Pennicino

When the news became official that Marco Motta was moving to Genoa on loan until the end of the season, Juventus' website had a long, well-written goodbye to the 27-year-old defender who originally signed with the club in the summer of 2010.

Marco Motta has today completed a loan move to Genoa until the end of the current season.

The temporary agreement will come to an end on 30 June 2014, at which point the Rossoblu will have the option to purchase Motta on a permanent basis.

Okay, so maybe not long. At least we got the details. Short and sweet.

But the fact still remains — Motta, everybody's "favorite" Juventus player is no longer a Juventus player. Well, at least foe the time being. He follows the recently departed Paolo De Ceglie — who is also on loan at Genoa until the end of the season — as the only official transfer business that Juventus has done this season.

Motta, who somehow made it through the summer transfer window without moving to another club, appeared in all of two Serie A games and played nearly 90 minutes (!!) in Juve's Coppa Italia opener against Avellino this season. Maybe during his time at Genoa, he can work on the weaknesses WhoScored says he has.

That's not very good for a defender, right?

I just have one question now that Motta is now a Genoa player for, at minimum, the rest of the season: How in the hell will Juventus be able to survive?

(Hint: I think they will be okay, you guys. Just a hunch I've got.)
