Coach Gian Piero Gasperini held a press conference ahead of the clash against Empoli for matchday 8 of the 2021-2022 Serie A TIM: “We resume with a new tour de force of matches and from the match against Empoli, which has been a difficult ground historically. The match against Manchester is important and prestigious, of course, but now we have to focus on Empoli. Then we will have a few days to prepare for the Champions League fixture”.
The Tuscan side started well and got some key results: “In all matches, against any opposition and even when you are facing a newly-promoted team, you can see a very dynamic game on the pitch. Empoli claimed several wins, they are doing well and have passion. Andreazzoli is a propositional coach and organizes his teams very well”.
Speaking of coaches, in recent days there have also been some nice words from the Chelsea coach Tuchel towards Atalanta and their way of approaching matches: “His compliments are like an award, perhaps among the most prestigious I have received. considering that they came from the coach who won last season’s Champions League. I really appreciated them”.
