Roberto Samaden appointed Head of Youth Academy

A remarkable hand-over at the helm of the Atalanta Youth Sector

Atalanta B.C. wishes to announce the appointment of Roberto Samaden as the new Head of the black-and-blue Youth Academy.

The Milan-born executive arrives in Zingonia after a long and fruitful 33-year tenure at FC Internazionale, having spent the last 13 years as the Director of the Youth Sector. His professional path, punctuated with successes beyond the sporting standpoint, needs little to no introduction.

On the strength of the 19 national championships won under his guidance, Roberto Samaden holds the remarkable record for the most successful manager in the history of Italian football as regards Youth Sectors.

Atalanta B.C. takes pride in benefiting from the proven skills and expertise of Roberto Samaden, whose professional figure – following in the path first marked by Mino Favini and then brought forth by Maurizio Costanzi – fully meets the Club’s vision and mission, both pivoted on the continuous growth and nurturing of the Youth Academy, our most precious asset, always to be protected, cherished and strengthened with targeted investments to ensure the thriving of a critical repository for the First Team.

On behalf of the Percassi and Pagliuca families, the Club altogether wishes to tender its most heartfelt welcome to Roberto Samaden, wishing him all the best in his new professional endeavour here at Atalanta.
