Atalanta coach Del Neri: Players have been waiting for European chance

Atalanta coach Gigi del Neri admits today's game against Chievo Verona will go a long way to securing a UEFA Cup place.

"We have players who have been waiting their turn for a long time. I expect a show of character from them and that they prove they have important qualities," said Del Neri.

"Nobody likes to be in an emergency situation, but we are not short on alternatives. We have had to do without Doni in the past as well. Clearly we have to make adjustments tactically."
