Hans Hateboer assured Atalanta “believe in ourselves” after they beat Cagliari to go joint fifth, one point adrift of Milan and the Champions League places.
“This is a very important win for us, as after the Coppa Italia victory we also needed to win here and we did it,” the wing-back told Sky Sport Italia.
The Orobici seem unstoppable at the moment, crushing Juventus 3-0 in the Coppa Italia quarter-final midweek.
“We believe in ourselves, but have to take it one game at a time and then see what happens. This is a very important result for us, as we know Cagliari have always been tough for Atalanta and they were clammed up, but we did well.
“I am really enjoying myself playing for Atalanta.”
