Atalanta sporting director Pierpaolo Marino believes that the club have made additions that will stand them in good stead next term.
Marko Livaja has been brought in from Inter and Mario Yepes has signed from Milan this summer.
And the board member is confident that La Dea have the right mix to do well in 2013/14.
“We want to grow,” he told reporters, “We hope that the mix of young and experiences players we have will mean we do well.
“Livaja? He is a great technical player. I think we will get the best out of him.”
