Reports have suggested Del Neri left his job at Atalanta on bad terms during the summer.

“Contrary to what has been written, I never had any problem with the Nerazzurri,” explained Del Neri to

“I lived two beautiful years there and we parted on good terms. In other words, it will be a pleasure going there.
