“I’ll be a mix between [Giampiero] Ventura and [Gian Piero] Gasperini. I already have very clear ideas and I can’t wait to get started.”
Former Milan midfielder Massimo Donati says Atalanta “are favourites” this weekend, and didn’t see any “top players” signed this summer.
“The Rossoneri cris网络外围投注is is difficult to explain,” Donati said.
The 36-year-old, who now plays in Scotland with Hamilton Academical, came up through the youth system in Bergamo, before moving on to the Rossoneri in June 2001.
Donati still keeps up with the fortunes of his first club too.
Ahead of the meeting between the two sides on Saturday, the veteran spoke to Gazzetta dello Sport about the respective teams.
“Hamilton offered me a trial and then we decided to continue together,” the midfielder shrugged.
“I was hoping they’d meet ‘my’ Celtic, but it didn’t happen. I hope they can meet later in the tournament.”
Donati won the league with Celtic, but why did he return to Scotland with Hamilton?
“I’m here to take my coaching A licence. Being able to do that while still on the pitch with Ha皇冠外围投注milton pushed me to choose Scotland.
“Eight, nine, 11 of the team have changed but no top players arrived. Atalanta are favourites at San Siro, but Milan have to redeem themselves after Verona.”
“When I saw the group I thought it was hard, and the tie with Borussi线上足球投注a Dortmund won’t be easy either, but Atalanta have a chance.
“I went to see Everton-Atalanta in the Europa League, it was a five hour drive there and five hours on the way back, but it was worth it.
