Ghana striker Richmond Boakye-Yiadom will be working with new coach Edy Reja at Atalanta after the Orobici sacked Stefano Colantuono.
The 20-year-old hopes the former Napoli coach will give him more playing opportunities for the rest of the season.
Boakye made a total of 17 appearances including six starting appearances for the struggling side.
“Atalanta B.C. communicate that they have dismissed Coach Stefano Colantuono, who will be replaced by Mr Edy Reja,” reads the statement.
“The club expresses profound admiration and gratitude to Mr Colantuono on account of the qualified work that he did with us for five years.”
Atalanta are currently 17th in Serie A and only three points clear of relegation zone.
