Atalanta boss has been so sad as they fail to get passed the group stage in the Champions League.

After

Atalanta’s

3-2 defeat against

Villarreal

and their failure in reaching the next stage, their boss

Gian Piero Gasperini

has talked about their performance, insisting that they leave the Champions League with regret because of the chances that they have missed during the group stage games.

The

Serie A

side missed some great opportunities, hitting the bar three times, but Gasperini’s regret is not only for their last match but for the whole stage.

“We usually manage to give our best in games like this, but instead we had just a horrible start and it becomes difficult when you go behind at this level,”

Gasperini told Amazon Prime Italia.

“We got the sensation as time wore on that we could get back into it, but it was too late. When Muriel hit the post, if that had gone in for 3-3, it would’ve given us a chance to throw everything at them. It is also true that in the 90 minutes we were unable to play the way we can.

“There are even more regrets because we went out in a game that we were more than capable of winning. The players have put in so many good performances this season, an off day can happen. When we managed to improve the quality of the football, that’s when we created lots of scoring opportunities.

“With Villarreal taking such an early lead, they could sit back even deeper and we struggled to break them down. The whole first half was not good, we misplaced passes and lacked our usual quality.

“We leave the Champions League with a lot of regrets.”
