Atalanta coach Gasperini proud reaching two finals

Atalanta coach Gian Piero Gasperini is proud of their season.

La Dea are in the finals of both the Coppa Italia and Europa League.

Gasperini said: “I used to think that the Coppa Italia was the only trophy Atalanta could win, as the Scudetto and the Champions League were quite far off. Instead, this is the third time we have reached the final. The other two didn't go so well, but we are stubborn and persistent.

“The Europa League was unthinkable for us, but the boys have been amazing and put an incredible journey together, and now all that is missing is the final step. We want to win the final.

"We'll see later on if this is my strongest Atalanta team. It's certainly a young Atalanta team that can grow and become even stronger. It's not easy to rebuild and remain competitive.

“We're certainly going in with lots of enthusiasm, and Juventus have had results below their expectations in recent weeks, but they remain an undeniably strong team."
