Angelo Gregucci holds no grudge against Atalanta after his sacking this week.
Gregucci was replaced by Antonio Conte and said: "I've got a knot in my stomach, it's hard, but I do not like funerals. I thank the club, the players, the people of Bergamo who stood by me and I was always encouraged.
"Excuse me, I'm sorry for the way it turned out. When the injured players recover, like Doni, Atalanta will get where it deserves. A mid-table place."
