Charles De Ketelaere’s first words as an Atalanta player

“I chose Atalanta because it is the right opportunity at the right time, also because of the way of playing.” So said the new Nerazzurri Charles De Ketelaere, who arrived on an onerous loan with right of redemption, to the official channels of the Bergamo club.

“Atalanta,” he explained, “had been following me since my time in Belgium. My impression as an opponent in an AC Milan shirt was of a team with a lot of energy and quality, they finished fifth so it is a very strong team.

The perfect environment for me – continued the Belgian fantasist, who chose the number 17 jersey -. I also spoke with Gasperini, he said he was happy with my arrival and I am happy too. I think the future is good.”

Finally, the presentation to the fans: “I really like to work but also to spend time with family, friends and teammates – De Ketelaere’s closing remark -. I am happy to start playing, I am also happy for the fans who have been waiting for me. I am happy, see you soon, forza Atalanta.”
