Antonio Conte has stepped down as coach of struggling Atalanta, after just three months in charge of the Bergamo outfit.
The Nerazzurri are currently on a terrible run of form and have slipped to second bottom in Serie A, with just 13 points from 17 games.
After their 2-0 home defeat against Napoli on Wednesday, supporters protested against the coach outside the Stadio Atleti Azzurri d'Italia.
Conte, a former Juventus captain and Italy international, tried to present his resignation following the match but it was rejected by the club's board.
However, the 40-year-old, who led Bari to promotion into the top-flight last season, announced that he has become the second coach this season to leave the struggling team after Angelo Gregucci was replaced back in September.
Atalanta's next match is a trip to in-form Palermo on Sunday at the Stadio Renzo Barbera.
