Valter Bonacina insists Atalanta will be fine this season, despite going through two coaches already this season.
Angelo Gregucci was fired and this week Antonio Conte resigned following a furious row with the fans.
Youth team Coach Bonacina took over for today's slender 1-0 defeat at Palermo's Stadio Barbera.
"The squad showed great mental strength and proved there are players of real quality here," he said.
"Today they exhibited desire and hunger. I thank the lads, who have been very eager to work with me and gave their best. It has been a great experience."
