Atalanta coach Gasperini: Italy has changed since returning from Valencia

Atalanta coach Gian Piero Gasperini admits reaching the Champions League last eight is surreal.

La Dea are into the quarterfinals after victory over Valencia.

“I was exhausted," Gasperini told Corriere dello Sport of his feelings upon returning to Italy. “We arrived around 3:30 AM and I immediately realised…

“We have plunged into a reality that we knew was terrible, but not at this point. The evolution since Sunday has been significant.

“It was a world four days ago, another on Monday and today another… Today, we don't know what to do, we would like to train. We don't ask for much. It's not easy, we will adapt.

“We have no idea about the future. Only uncertainties. Will it go on? Will we play again? We only know that we are through to the next round and that we are doing well in the League."
