Atalanta coach Gasperini plays down Tottenham move talk

Atalanta coach Gian Piero Gasperini responded to rumours linking him with Tottenham after victory over Parma.

La Dea won 5-2 on Sunday and Gasperini was asked about Spurs rumours.

He said, “I have a very long contract with Atalanta and I am very happy, but every day reports come out about some interest or other, I can assure you I've not had contact with anyone.

“It'd be flattering if they were interested, but if someone wants to talk to me, I urge them to swing by at the end of the season only after I have spoken to the President."

Gasperini was also asked about a title challenge next season.

“No, that's difficult for a club like Atalanta. The indications we get from league competition are always the same, there is a clear and elevated economic disparity between various clubs," the coach told Sky Italia.

“The objective of Atalanta is always to improve. With these economic mechanisms in place, we could never start out the season aiming to win the Scudetto."
