Atalanta coach Gasperini admits confidence rock bottom after Verona defeat

Atalanta coach Gian Piero Gasperini admits confidence is low after their defeat to Hellas Verona.

Monday night was a third consecutive Serie A defeat for La Dea.

“Our morale is in freefall at the moment," confessed Gasperini to DAZN.

“We have to focus on ending the season positively, because we owe it to the fans who support us. The lads did put the effort in today and we're not very lucky right now, but when we play open games against technically-gifted sides, we often end up losing."

Gasperini was asked if it was time for a squad rebuild.

"That is something the club will evaluate when the moment comes. We had done very well in Europe this season, both in the Champions League and Europa League. In Serie A, we did very well until December and then were unable to meet expectations both in terms of results and performance.

“There are many components to this change of direction, not just one. When the season has ended, we will draw our conclusions.

“At this moment what we need to do is realise this isn't the finale we want and we owe it to our fans to finish in the most dignified manner possible."
