Thiago Motta’s words ahead of Atalanta-Bologna

In the 27th round of Serie A, the direct clash for fourth place between Atalanta and Bologna will be staged. Kickoff Sunday, March 3, at 6 p.m. at the Gewiss Stadium. A few days before the crucial match, the Felsinei coach Thiago Motta, in a press conference, bluntly analyzed the match that awaits his boys.

"Definitely there'è something of Gasperini in my way of coaching, because é with him I have seen so many good things, in the way of working, in training and in everyday life. The consistency that è managed to give Atalanta è a source of inspiration, but it is not è the case to say that it will be a challenge between me and him, but rather; a meeting between two teams that enter the field to compete at their best, giving great hope to the public to see good football" began the coach of the Felsinei.

"Atalanta è a great team, with Milan they suffered a little more, with Inter they started well then if you go under with the Nerazzurri at San Siro è complicated. They are strong, they are well, they can count on players with great ballistic skills like Koopmeiners, they attack the area well trying to punish at every slightest opponent mistake. Not è not only a top club, but è a club that over time è managed to stay in the top areas of the standings, and è the most difficult thing" continued the coach of the Rossoblù.

"I am so happy for Joshua, he deserves it 200% pr what he has done so far. It's one more step for his career, he will have to continue to work and do as he is doing, so that he can also help his national team" commented Thiago Motta regarding Zirkzee’s call-up with the Dutch national team.
