Atalanta, Gasperini: “We are not afraid of Napoli”

Atalanta’s coach, Gianpiero Gasperini, spoke to Dazn’s microphones after the match they won against Empoli 2-0. Below, here are the words of Mr. Atalantino:

On Lookman:

He has scored five goals, he has always made an important contribution, he is a quick offensive reference, he is giving us a lot. Is he a player for Gasperini? No, he is for everyone. We realized his worth of him, he played right from the start. Lookman was very good, he is becoming more and more important to us. He misses a little not only in attack but also in the exits. Already in the first matches he made the difference “.

On Naples:

Fear no, but great admiration, it’s extraordinary. Spalletti for the game he gave, Giuntoli for the players taken, the enthusiasm around this team. The important thing is that they don’t do well in Bergamo, we need to play an important match against a strong team ”.

About Zapata and Hojlund:

Sometimes the quality and number of goals is not dictated by the number of forwards. We are looking for a balance. Muriel did very well, too bad he was disqualified today. Then I really liked Hojlund, it was a nice thorn in my side. He is a player that Atalanta had to bet on. Duvan entered much better than Lazio, I liked Hojlund very much for the quality of his choices and he has great speed. He can still improve a lot ”.

On excluded:

I would never have thought of such a departure. This is a somewhat particular season, at the beginning there was this doubt about what to do, perhaps about starting with more young people or keeping a lot of the bones. It was a difficult situation for me to put players like Malinovskyi or Pasalic on the bench, it didn’t suit me. The players were good otherwise situations like this risk creating difficulties for you. The outline is waiting for you to create bad moods, or bad news, we are trying to improve ourselves. If we improve technically, we have the possibility of making many young people grow ”.
