Atalanta in the final, Gasp's happiness «Thanks to the boys: they are extraordinary»

During the last interminable seconds he could no longer hold back the exultation which he then released together with the roar of the public. Gian Piero Gasperini is the portrait of happiness: «We beat a strong team and in the two games I think we deserved the qualification. We can say it: we paid a little for the efforts of the San Paolo. And they could catch us at speed. We were good against a valuable opponent. I think it was two beautiful games. We are in the final and we feel stronger because we have eliminated two teams of the caliber of Juventus and Fiorentina ».

Gasp then focuses on mentality and environment: "Here there is an atmosphere that pushes us a lot – the coach confides -, and then in the group there is really a great spirit. Many teams would have managed the result on 1-1, but we wanted to win, despite the hard work of Napoli in the legs. This is an exceptional season and I would like to give credit to these guys who are doing something extraordinary for continuity, for will to win, for the will to snatch a historic result. Today (yesterday, ed) many were not at their best and they really scraped the bottom of the barrel ».

Now Lazio: "A strong team is played by them, but I believe that three quarters of Bergamo will follow us". The release of Ilicic? «I'll have to hear him whimpering for a week … – Gasp smiles – apart from jokes, he and the Papu were great. But we always talk about the usual and instead I want to really give credit to everyone, to an extraordinary group ».

At the end of the game, Antonio Percassi, president of Atalanta, is enthusiastic: "For us it is a dream come true, we are very happy and now we must prepare for the final – the words of the Nerazzurri club number one -. Our primary objective has always been to maintain the category keeping the accounts in order, everything that is happening is an added value ".

A qualification, yesterday's, to be dedicated to Mino Favini, who died in recent days. "The first thing I did as president was to take the best in the youth sector – continues Percassi -. We convinced him with our project and he did an extraordinary job. Gasperini? I deny the voices that give him at the start, stay with us for life ».
