brushed aside the questions regarding next season’s scudetto.
No, that’s difficult for a club like Atalanta. The indications we get from league competition are always the same, there is a clear and elevated economic disparity between various clubs,”
the coach told
Sky Sport Italia
“The objective of Atalanta is always to improve. With these economic mechanisms in place, we could never start out the season aiming to win the Scudetto.”
UEFA has yet to react to Juventus, Barcelona and Real Madrid still being committed to the Super League.
“There is uncertainty regarding the Cups and other League competitions. Football needs the same organisation for everyone, so even with differences between clubs, the system should favour those who get the results and do things the right way, otherwise it’s difficult to do anything.”
However, Gasperini does not intend to walk away from the club, with reported links from Tottenham.
“I have a very long contract with Atalanta and I am very happy, but every day reports come out about some interest or other, I can assure you I’ve not had contact with anyone.
“It’d be flattering if they were interested, but if someone wants to talk to me, I urge them to swing by at the end of the season only after I have spoken to the President.”
