Atalanta talent factory

La Dea continues to marshal young players through one of the Peninsula’s top footballing academies and mould them into impactful first teamers, writes Matthew Santangelo.

Over the last few years, Atalanta have emerged as one of Italian football’s model clubs for others on the Peninsula to emulate.

Besides having veterans like captain Papu Gomez to shoulder leadership responsibility, set the tone in the locker room and be the example for the younger players in the squad, the Centro Sportivo Bortolotti is where most of the magic has transpired.

Gattuso saviour of Milan

Milan needed a man who could rforge a team and unite the fans. They found him in the unexpected form of Gennaro Gattuso, writes Adam Summerton.

Following the latest false Milan revival at the beginning of this season, I can recall looking at their situation and thinking how they needed a coaching saviour to take on one of the most difficult jobs in football.

Further financial splurge was not an option after a complex buy-out and the restrictions of FFP, so it needed someone with great personality and coaching prowess to get Milan out of a mess and back on the up. Someone, ideally, who could also tap in to the club’s under-appreciated yet very productive academy.

Kessie and Gagliardini reunion

The boys from Bergamo both headed to San Siro, but Jack Stevens looks at how Franck Kessie and Roberto Gagliardini have fared so far.

As the Derby della Madonnina looms ominously, two of Italy’s most iconic sides match up to claim their rightful place as ‘the’ club in Milan. Both share the same skies and the same streets, and both come from the same home, only to be divided by a rivalry woven into their history.

Much like Milan and Inter, Franck Kessie and Roberto Gagliardini share a similar story. Both grew up and were fed by the same hand in Bergamo by Atalanta, however they now find themselves worlds apart, each representing their own half of Milan.
