Atalanta have cooled reports of Juventus coach Gigi del Neri joining them.

Expected to leave Juve after a problematic first campaign in Turin, Atalanta have been associated with his services.

"It's fantasy football," said Atalanta sporting director Gabriele Zamagna. "We've been hearing this rumour for a few months now, but we have been clear.

"Should we get promotion back to Serie A then we will continue with Stefano Colantuono."
