Gasp: ‘Inter damaged me’

Atalanta boss Gian Piero Gasperini admits he enjoyed revenge over Inter and was close to taking the Juventus job on two occasions.

The Coach was famously fired after just five games in September 2011.

“The three-man defence there was seen as repugnant,” Gasp told La Repubblica newspaper.

“I wasn’t at the club long enough to do damage. If anything, Inter did damage to me. It was very satisfying afterwards to finish above Inter in the table with Genoa.”

Atalanta boss Gian Piero Gasperini admits he enjoyed revenge over Inter and was close to taking the Juventus job on two occasions.

The Coach was famously fired after just five games in September 2011.

“The three-man defence there was seen as repugnant,” Gasp told La Repubblica newspaper.

“I wasn’t at the club long enough to do damage. If anything, Inter did damage to me. It was very satisfying afterwards to finish above Inter in the table with Genoa.”

He’s on track to repeat the trick, as Atalanta are currently in joint fourth place, seven points above the Nerazzurri.

Gasp worked at the Juventus youth academy, but came close to the main Turin bench too.

“I twice had contact, when they were in Serie B and then during the era of Alessio Secco and Jean-Claude Blanc.

“I will always be grateful to Juve because that club transmitted values that today might seem anachronistic: discipline, sense of belonging, a respect for your roles and your opponents.

“What I learned there, I tried to pass on to players as a Coach.”
