Atalanta making Europe Gasp

Atalanta are ripping up the book of clichés about Italian teams in the Champions League and Giancarlo Rinaldi is enjoying the ride along with them.

In the accepted wisdom of Champions League football, the first leg of a knockout tie is supposed to be a cagey affair. Add an Italian team into the mix, and we are usually told to expect the soporific to drowsily outweigh the spectacular.

The Iceman Cometh

The latest talent unearthed and developed by Atalanta could well be Swiss international midfielder Remo 'Iceman' Freuler, explains Wayne Girard.

The dense fog rests under the Citta Alta of Bergamo as if the Greek huntress, Atalanta herself, laid a blanket over the valley to shelter her inhabitants.

Just two kilometres to the east, the Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia looms in the distance. Its club has fostered some of Italy’s finest youth for the last generations, and as these young players perpetually move on to finer pastures, Atalanta seems to have found the withstanding recipe for Plusvalenza - or buying players cheaply based on scouting ability, and then selling them for high value.

Going out of the Europa League weighed on us, above all mentally,” he told Gazzetta dello Sport.
