Atalanta coach Gian Piero Gasperini: Incredible season

Atalanta coach Gian Piero Gasperini was delighted with victory over Chievo Verona.

If Lazio fail to win away to Crotone tomorrow evening, Atalanta will secure fourth place.

“It has certainly been an incredible campaign, both for the result and the way this Europa League adventure matured," the Coach told Sky Sport Italia.

“I thank everyone for going beyond all expectations. There is so much talk about some of the young players in our squad, but I want to highlight those who were struggling in Serie B or waiting for their opportunity.

“The performances of Rafael Toloi, Andrea Masiello, Jasmin Kurtic, Papu Gomez, Etrit Berisha, those who are a little less young, stunned everyone.

“The emergence of so many young lads was significant and they had good role models in the squad. It means everyone has important values."
