Gian Piero Gasperini reignites controversy against Fiorentina

Atalanta will face Fiorentina tomorrow at 6 pm. Gian Piero Gasperini, in a press conference presented the challenge with the violets this way, “Fiorentina maybe thought they had a few more points. In recent years the one against the Viola has always been a fundamental challenge to go to Europe and it will be significant this time as well.”

Last year’s challenge between the two teams was characterized mostly by controversy: “The matches are there to see, it’s obvious what happened. Tomorrow will be a different game. I don’t make complaints, I make complaints: it’s different. This time there are very important referees both on the field and at Var: let’s hope there are no episodes such as to fuel controversy.”

“Being able to not take goals makes you invincible, but to win you need to know how to attack,” Gasp continued. “I am serene when I don’t take goals: now we will try to improve at the level of scoring, we need more prolificacy especially at home. Eight games in a row, all in one breath: it’s as if the championship ended on the 15th, before the World Cup. It’s a pity not to play in Europe, because these are competitions that give you more than they take away.”

The orobici helmsman concluded by taking stock of the injured: “Djimsiti has started running again, we will know more in 15-20 days, Zapata has to have an examination to see if he can return to training. Zappacosta pulled in a friendly on Thursday, while Demiral has not trained since the Roma game and returned to training yesterday.”
