“We have managed to raise the level of Atalanta in relation to its history. » Gian Piero Gasperini returned at a press conference to the progress of Atalanta Bergamo over the years, which he has led since 2016, when the Italian club faces OM in the semi-finals of the Europa League this Thursday 9 may.

A first title since 1963 to look for

Since his arrival in Bergamo, Atalanta has stabilized at the top of the Serie A hierarchy. The club hopes, this season, to win its first title since 1963. “We show that a small club with a small budget can, thanks to its ideas, its management, the feeling of belonging, create a team which gives satisfaction. » Atalanta even reached the quarter-finals of the Champions League in 2020, only beaten by PSG, for their first participation.

“To win trophies, you have to surpass yourself. The parameters of success and victory are often to surpass oneself. I think there is no limit, you shouldn’t set a limit. The secret is to always dream a little bigger with our ideas and possibilities. Ideas cannot be bought »estimates the 66-year-old technician.

Currently fifth in Serie A, Atalanta is still in the race for qualification in the Champions League since Italy is sure to finish in one of the first two places in the UEFA coefficient for the year, with Germany, thanks to the results of the transalpine clubs.
