    Why Atalanta? Why not Real Madrid, Manchester City, Bayern Munich or even Barcelona. He can even manage Chelsea or Atletico Madrid. Nigeria players don’t aim higher.

      Atalanta is not a push over team as you think,they can hold their own against bigger team in Europe,need I remind you that they are in the race for Champions League this season.

    • @ebuke whatever use Sense na, he suspose land in Madrid and tell real Madrid that you are next team so arrange my medical and negotiate with my former club for a fee ? Or he will call Barcelona to buy him or is gonna commit suicide ?, How is it the player’s fault for these teams not going for him. The way you guys are saying it, it starting to annoy me, even when bassey move some people where saying eredivise is a farmers league that why not Chelsea. Does the player pick.

  • Nice move……all SE players should be in top5 league shekena.
