Atalanta striker Petagna disappointed with Rooney

Atalanta striker Andrea Petagna hailed coach Gian Piero Gasperini after their victory over Everton.

Atalanta defeated Everton 3-0 in their opening Europa League win.

"We prepared this game in the best way, following what the Coach asked of us. He is a phenomenon," Petagna told TMW Radio.

“If we continue to follow him the way we did last season, then we can achieve more remarkable targets. We are a young group, eager to prove ourselves and have to continue with this humility and determination.

“We don't feel tired because we prepared so well over the summer and playing games is the most enjoyable training session there is."

Atalanta made England international Wayne Rooney disappear on the night.

“He made history in English football and I was disappointed not to exchange shirts with him. Maybe I'll manage it in the return match."
