Gasperini’s statements after the loss to Salernitana

After the loss to Salernitana, Atalanta coach Gian Piero Gasperini was blunt about his boys’ performance and the team’s European ambitions. “We had a decent promo half, but in the second half they outclassed us in every aspect. We got a goal in the 92nd minute, but the team was in trouble for a long time against a quality opponent like Salernitana. Today I saw a team definitely far from the real Atalanta, and I am absolutely responsible for that. We took the field without spirit and motivation,” said the Nerazzurri coach.

“We have three games left where with a little or a lot of luck we will have to try to grab a place somewhere in Europe, because for me that is the only thing that matters. The standings will definitely change and I don’t know how many chances we will have for the Europa League and the Conference League. We will have to keep believing and fighting, but it will also be crucial to find that brilliance that we have lost,” added Gian Piero Gasperini.
