LATEST NEWS AS ROMA – Gian Piero Gasperini speak in Press conference of the match that will be played tomorrow afternoon, 6 pm, at the Olimpico against Rome.
These are the statements of the Atalanta coach.
“This year we have never set anything, being first after six days is a great merit. But it is just the beginning, it is a championship yet to be deciphered, it is very difficult. The big teams have strengthened significantly, but also the other teams: Monza and Cremonese, which we have faced, have come very close, but also Lecce and Salernitana. We are there, but we have to understand what we can do, tomorrow will be a good test before the break, afterwards the ideas will be clearer ”.
What do you expect from tomorrow’s race?
“Certainly the personality, on the way of being on the pitch we have had many confirmations, like against Milan and Turin. We will see how we manage to play tomorrow ”.
With Mourinho they are always complicated games. Will it be a different challenge than the two of last year?
“The teams have changed, Roma have taken Dybala, they give extraordinary value to the team. Last year there are many particular episodes, it was another season. For me it represents a formidable test, we meet an undoubtedly strong team, it can also give us an important opportunity to play football ”.
Tomorrow he will overcome the benches with Genoa …
“Genoa has been a long and important part of my career. But I am happy to have reached this milestone with Atalanta, we hope to celebrate in the best possible way “.
What is missing in Boga?
“I think about performance. I am very pleased when you talk about performance: it depends on him, when there will be performances adequate to what the team requires there will be more space. Why does this happen? If I had had the answer I would have also had the answer. Every week there is this thing, I heard a few things about Muriel… Muriel played a lot, last year she played 27 out of 38 matches. These are the numbers, the rest is misinformation ”.
“I am very happy, Thiago Motta is there too. If Monza made this choice it means that they showed excellent qualities already in the Spring. They all represent a team that has come within a whisker of the Champions League, for me it is a Source of great satisfaction “.
