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.”
