Colantuono extends Atalanta deal
Atalanta coach Stefano Colantuono has signed a contract extension with the Bergamaschi outfit, the club confirmed today.
The 48-year-old has penned a two-year deal which will keep him in Bergamo until June 2013. Colantuono joined Atalanta last summer and led the club to automatic promotion to Italy's top-flight after a one-year absence.
Atalanta finished at the top of Serie B this season with 79 points from 42 games. "Stefano Colantuono is the right coach for Atalanta," Atalanta president Antonio Percassi said.
"Considering the great work he has done this season, it was a must for us to extend his contract."
