Atalanta President Antonio Percassi is delighted with their first half of the season. “I couldn’t even dream of such a start.”
The Orobici flattened Sassuolo 6-2 on Saturday, closing 2018 in eighth place with 28 points, but also as the top scorers in Serie A with 39 goals, surpassing leaders Juventus.
“I couldn’t even dream of such a start to the campaign,” President Percassi told the club website.
“What we’ve done is extraordinary. We have the most prolific team in the league and could not have done any better than this.
“It hardly feels real and we can continue to dream.”
Atalanta had a strong run in the Europa League last season, while they were eliminated in the play-offs by FC Copenhagen in August.
