Atalanta's squad 22:10 - Feb 19 with 854 viewsSharkey

I thought I'd brush up on Atalanta, and looked at their Wikipedia site. The number of players they have out on loan seems extraordinary to me - I counted about 65. I know Chelsea, for example, are said to have a few sprinkled around the place, but I have no idea if Atalanta are freakish by Italian standards. (I guess it would be simple enough to google a few more clubs)

I mentioned a few weeks back that I love watching Atalanta BC and are my second team. When I first dig a little digging on them and their squad I came across this.

However, what I found, Atalanta invest heavily in young development and progression, almost double tonight’s opponents Valencia.

However Atlanta Primavera only goes up to u-19, and after that age as they are often still too young first team action they continue their development in lower league Italian sides.

I actually think they have over 100 on the first team books, but it’s not quite that black and white.

Poll: Would you be happy with Paul Lambert?

Interesting. Do you mean they choose not to have the Italian equivalent of a reserve team (U23 team in modern parlance) , or is that not a 'thing' in Italy generally?

I note that in their first team squad of 25 there are only six Italians, if Wikipedia is right. (Is there a minimum number of 'natives' in all European leagues.?)

Their wage bill is the same as Readings apparently.

Looking a bit closer , i see that while their youth players all play for precribed lower league clubs in dífferent regional leagues (so I guess not playing against each other) , that of the 65 more senior players out on loan plenty play in major clubs - Roma, Parma, Sampdoria, Calgiari, Bologna included.

I suppose Chelsea do do something similar, but it's an unusual approach.

I believe they call them B teams or subsidiary teams over there. Juventus are the only Italian side with a B side per say.

In regards to 5 Italian players that is correct, only one stared last night (Gollini) and only 3 in the 18.

If you watch the, I encourage you do, they are far from a typical Italian side, very adventurous and creative.
