Atalanta scouting chief Roberto Nitto lifts lid on discovering new sensation Moustapha Cisse

Atalanta scouting chief Roberto Nitto has lifted the lid on their new sensation Moustapha Cisse.

Cisse scored the winner on debut against Bologna last weekend, having only signed for the Atalanta academy in February from Italy's eighth division.

Nitto told La Corriere dello Sport: "I heard from hm last night, he was very happy and incredulous. It was all so fast that it amazed everyone. He told me that emotion betrayed him before taking the field, but that despite having accompanied him on the pitch, he still managed to keep his balance."

Nitto also spoke of his discovery in the province of Lecce in the team of refugees 'Rinascita Refugees': "Atalanta sent all the entourage to Carmiano and they chose him immediately. I immediately noticed quick thinking and extraordinary athletic skills, he uses both feet as if they were one, he is a natural talent and in addition he is also a hard worker."
