Gasperini says that Atalanta must evolve no matter what.
There are reports saying thatPapu Gomez
in January but
says that there is no personal reason behind benching Gomez.
“We had played nine Serie A games and six in the Champions League, I think Gomez was the only one to play in all of them. We’ve been more solid recently with this new system and so we are trying other alternatives,”
“I consider it indispensable to keep changing and evolving. I have always been at clubs for quite a long time, at least usually. Around five years for a coach is a long time, so it’s indispensable to seek other alternatives.
“My first Atalanta was completely different to the current iteration, for example. We also saw some things against Ajax that we will try to adopt and learn from, because in the Champions League every week, we are learning and evolving our game when up against different football cultures.”
And when he was asked if Gomez will leave the club in January he said:
“That is not the case. I think the club has to make strong choices on how to set targets for the team and coach in future. That’s not necessarily results, but how to behave and approach games. We have to look to the future, because when you stop and get stuck in your ways, it ends up being like going backwards.
“If the coach is not in sync with his club, then it becomes a problem, but we always exchange ideas, there’s no issue.”
