Papu found all he wanted with Atalanta

Papu Gomez rejected big clubs because he wanted to be a protagonist, but Jay Cassano outlines how he combined ambition and affection at Atalanta.

When, in 2014, Atalanta signed 26-year old Alejandro ‘Papu’ Gomez for €8m from little-known Metalist Kharkiv, there were no front-page headlines. There were no pundits debating for days on end the merits of the signing. And the club from Bergamo had no idea they had just brought a future club icon to town.

Football Italia’s Chief Correspondent Richard Hall looks at Atalanta’s impressive form and asks, can they seriously qualify for the Champions League?

The 0-0 draw with Inter had been less than inspiring, but the point was enough to take them into joint fourth spot. Now, the Champions League seemed possible, especially as the other contenders all conspired to slip up. There are certainly still some hurdles to jump before the finishing post looms, but their destiny is now largely in their own hands.
