Atalanta consider options should Gasperini go

by | May 9, 2022 17:25

Following Gian Piero Gasperini’s confession that ‘things have changed’ at Atalanta with new owners, Ivan Juric and Igor Tudor are emerging as possible replacements for next season.

Gasp was the symbol over six years of a complete revamp of the squad, which went from relegation candidates to regulars in the Champions League.

They reached the Europa League quarter-final this term and the Coppa Italia Final last season, but the arrival of co-owner Stephen Pagliuca to buy up circa 50 per cent of the club from the Percassi family promises the start of a new era.

It is not yet clear whether Gasperini will be a part of it, as he himself confessed to DAZN after yesterday’s 3-1 win away to Spezia.

“I am very fond of this club and these fans, I signed a contract in November, but clearly things have changed and it depends on the club, what they decide.

“We have never talked about it, I am open to any option. If we go forward like this, I will continue with enthusiasm.”

If Gasperini does part company with Atalanta, the replacements would also probably be within Serie A and of a similar tactical credo.

According to Tuttomercatoweb, the candidates include current Torino boss Juric, who was Gasperini’s player at Genoa and assistant manager for a while, effectively his student.

Another would be Tudor, who has done so well since taking over Hellas Verona just a month into the season.
