Atalanta coach Gasperini asks for maximum focus on Roma

Giampiero Gasperini addressed the media ahead of tomorrow’s afternoon fixture vs Roma.

“We need to improve our performance at home, it takes a more important streak to be able to raise the points quota at home, but these are all statistics, what matters is Atalanta-Roma. It is a match and of great value, where we need to play focused. We cannot think about Christmas.”

“This is a very important moment in the campaign, in three days we end the first round, which is still significant.”

“We’re in a good moment but we must shift all attention to the match against Roma. They remain a good side.”

On facing Mourinho:

“He is certainly a great coach, both for the enthusiasm he brought at the beginning and for his history, which is important in a place like Rome. Then the pitch is a whole other story.”

“I am convinced that he will be able to raise the level, he is human too.”
