Despite interest from elsewhere, the CEO of Atalanta insists that Gian Piero Gasperini isn’t leaving the club, no matter who comes calling for him.
CEO Luca Percassi told Gazetta delol Sport:
I agree with what the President said: Gasperini’s staying here. He’s done an extraordinary job.
We have a lot to play for and we could end up losing everything. Behind the results there’s passion and preparation.
We took the team from Serie B and we got here by working gradually.
While Milan might be able to throw some more money at Gasperini than Atalanta can, what the club can’t offer is job security, and right now there is a better chance that Atalanta get Champions League football than Milan, and if that happens, there is no way that Gasperini leaves Bergamo.
These “links” could all just be rumors at this point, or a way for Gasperini to get a better deal. Until the end of the season, there will be a lot of chaos surrounding Gennaro Gattuso, since it appears that he’s not going to be the manager next season.
