Atalanta coach Gasperini frustrated after 7-0 rout of Torino

Atalanta coach Gian Piero Gasperini was left frustrated after their 7-0 rout of Torino.

La Dea went into the game on the back of defeat to minnows SPAL.

“If we always played like this, we'd be top of the table! Unfortunately, there are times when we have a drop physically or mentally, and that is where we drop points," Gasp told DAZN.

“Sometimes, though, we put in some great performances against the bigger clubs. For example, if Luis Muriel had converted the penalty against Inter rather than the one today, it would've been better."

There was another hat-trick for Josep Ilicic and the coach continued: “Ilicic is a decisive player in front of goal, both as a scorer and a constant reference points for his teammates to create moves. It becomes difficult for teams to mark Ilicic and Papu Gomez, as if they get any space to run into, they are unstoppable.

“Now Duvan Zapata is back and in good shape, he'll be an enormous reinforcement, as we lost him for such a long time in the first half of the season."
