Atalanta Coach Stefano Colantuono has labelled football in his homeland as ‘very strange.’
The tactician was referring to the number of sackings that take place throughout the peninsula over the course of a season.
The 51-year-old has been at the Bergamo side since 2010, the same year his side’s opponents tomorrow, Verona, appointed Andrea Mandorlini.
“Italy is a very strange country,” Colantuono told the media. “On the one hand people say there are too many sackings, but on the other they say that someone’s time is up after only a short time in the job and that it’s time for a change.
“It’s important to find a happy medium. What is certain is that, if the Coach knows how to work, long term stability will be rewarding to a club.”
