Livaja: Atalanta the right place

New Atalanta forward Marko Livaja has insisted that he can become an important player for the club after his January move.

The Croatia youth international moved to La Dea as part of the deal that saw Ezequiel Schelotto join Inter.

And the 19-year-old has admitted that more playing time was a factor in his decision to accept the offer.

“I am here to play more and I am happy to be at a great team like Atalanta,” he told a Press conference.

“The President has convinced me that this is the right place, and has shown a lot of confidence in me.

“It was great being at Inter and training with superb players like Antonio Cassano and Samir Handanovic.

“The club have been a great help in my development.”
