Gasperini proud as Atalanta enter top 4

Atalanta boss Gian Piero Gasperini was delighted with victory over Crotone.

The win moves the club into fourth place.

“This is a very important victory and a difficult one achieved against a side that caused us a lot of problems, preventing us from playing our game in the first half," the coach told Sky Sport Italia.

“Winning this type of match means it really is a great season. I am truly satisfied, because aside from the idea of chasing Europe, we wanted to reach these next few rounds in the best possible position.

“It was anything but simple and now we will face off against Napoli, Fiorentina and Inter. If we manage to get results there too, then our chances of reaching that target are even better."

He added: “I don't know how you define a big club, but if we look at the table, Atalanta are in a very good position indeed. At Genoa I also used to finish in the top 10 at least, so I'm missing nothing."
