Coppa Italia

GASPERINI'S POST-MATCH PRESS CONFERENCE

Gian Piero Gasperini spoke in the post-match press conference following the Coppa Italia match between Fiorentina and Atalanta (3-3).

About the game: “I am quite annoyed, because we controlled the game for most of it and made mistakes to allow Fiorentina back in. It’s a good result in terms of qualification, but also a wasted opportunity to win on the night. We were 2-0 up and unfortunately an error with a few too many futile passes at the back invited Fiorentina to boost their confidence. They hadn’t really done much until then."

On Fiorentina: "They have some very fast players like Federico Chiesa and Luis Muriel, who can get between the lines and burst past you if given time and space. We are a team that likes to attack, so inevitably we leave something to the opposition too."

On his players: "Josip Ilicic and Papu Gomez did well for us between the lines, but perhaps we should’ve given more central service to Duvan Zapata. Overall, we’re satisfied with the performance."
