Atalanta Serie A leaders, Gasperini: ‘We’ll try to make it last’


Gian Piero Gasperini hopes to see Atalanta on top of the Serie A table for as much time as possible: ‘It’s the first time in the club’s history…’

La Dea has climbed to the top of the table following a 2-0 win over Monza today.

They are now two points clear of Napoli and Milan.

“Atalanta have never been on top of the table alone, the lads deserve the praise, it’s a nice thing for us and our fans. We’ll try to make it last as much as possible,” Gasperini told DAZN.

“The fans can enjoy this great moment, we know we have a lot of work ahead of the next games. We have a lot of options that are working well. Hojlund scored, Soppy played an excellent game, like Ederson and Lookman.

“Hojlund has interesting characteristics for a 19-year-old. He is a smart guy and I hope I’ll help him improve with some advice.

“It’s important to score goals because it’s how you win games, last season we stopped scoring goals and that’s why we didn’t go forward. This team has different characteristics, this season we have more pace.”

Atalanta didn’t qualify for any European competition last season and face Cremonese in the next Serie A game on Sunday.

  1. This is a very different Atalanta side. They are nowhere near as much fun to watch, but now they are more clinical and, at least for now, much tighter at the back. On the one hand, I’m not convinced it will last as even yesterday they rode their luck at times. On the other, the absence of European commitments will keep them fresh and give them much more time to prepare. They will be one of the more interesting teams to keep an eye on this year.
