had a good performance.

“It’s a good test, it gives you the right conviction on what we can do,”

Gasperini told the club’s official channel.

“I’m very happy with Musso and Demiral.

“We only started training together on Monday, we are a bit late, as soon as we recover a bit, we can all do well.”

Gasperini insists that although West Ham is going to start the domestic competitions sooner than Atalanta, it can’t be used as an excuse for their defeat or lack of preparation.

“There are no excuses, often when you come to play this type of games, you think about the preparation,”

he said


“It’s true, we are late, but we are a close-knit group. I’m sorry we conceded towards the end.

“Now, there’s the market that certainly annoys us, but it’s also an opportunity for us to come out of it complete.”

Gasperini, who changed all his players against West Ham, has talked about his plans for the next season and praised the club’s CEO Luca Percassi for his performance in the transfer market.

“Yes, we will play a match on Wednesday, then on Saturday we will play against Juventus,”

he continued.

“These are confirmations that I already had at the end of the season.

“Now, we have to do some things to make us competitive. There are different situations, preparations with different periods as the latest players have arrived on Monday.

“But, I think we will be able to settle the score. Luca Percassi is very active, he managed to make a great deal, the one for Demiral, it was not easy to replace an important piece like [Cristian] Romero.

“Unforeseen events can happen in the market, which maybe you don’t think a few weeks before, but I see him ready, with many good ideas, we hope to realize some of them.”
