Statistics - Season 2005/06
A powerful right-back, Marco Motta can defend well, is fast and crosses well. He is considered one of the hottest prospects in Italian football.
Motta has represented Italy at every youth level and is involved in their 2006 UEFA European Under-21 Championship campaign.
Motta is a product of the famous Atalanta BC youth system and made his Serie A debut at the Olimpico stadium against AS Roma in January 2005. Although by then Atalanta were already close to relegation, he established himself as a regular and earned a summer move to UEFA Champions League contenders Udinese Calcio.
Did you know?
Motta started to play on a regular basis with Atalanta when Udinese signed right-back Damiano Zenoni - whom he followed to the club several months later to compete for his place.
