Sassuolo's De Zerbi urges the team to push for more in Serie A

Sat 02 January 2021 | 16:58

Sassuolo head coach Roberto De Zerbi stresses 'eighth place is not enough' for the Black & Greens, who have desires for European tournaments while they will face Atalanta. 'They are one of the big sides in the league.'

If we were to finish in the top seven, it would be going beyond expectations,” said De Zerbi on the club's official Channel.

“On paper, there are at least seven teams stronger than Sassuolo this season, but we’re not interested in what happens on paper. We want to keep aiming higher and last term’s eighth place was not enough.”

Sassuolo

 are attempting to continue in the strides of 

Atalanta

, the regional team that with low expenses and a bright youth foundation, made it to the 

Champions League

 quarter-finals.

“Atalanta are a complete team. They have history, a strong team, great fans and club. They are one of the big sides in the league and it disappoints me tomorrow more than many other games that it’ll be behind closed doors.

“In my view, Atalanta are just as good as Juventus, Inter, Milan, Napoli or Roma. That tells you the difficulty level we’re going into tomorrow.”
