Pagliuca was reacting to claims in the English media on Chelsea’s bid.
Atalanta co-owner Stephen Pagliuca has admitted his commitment to La Dea despite launching a bid for Chelsea.
Pagliuca acquired a 55% stake in Atalanta and has recently joined the club’s board of directors along with his son and Bain Capital Private Equity chiefs David Benjamin Gross-Loh and Luca Bassi.
“We wish to reaffirm the commitment of our family and partners to Atalanta and our partnership with the Percassi family, in a short statement, the American billionaire said.
“We are long-term partners and we are excited to continue the success of the club.”
Pagliuca was reacting to claims in the English media that he would have to reduce his stake in Atalanta should his Chelsea offer prove successful.
