Empoli Coach Beppe Iachini congratulated his team for the comeback to beat Atalanta 3-2. “We need this mentality to succeed in the top flight.”
Antonino La Gumina was signed from Palermo over the summer by previous Coach Aurelio Andreazzoli, but Iachini has now won two in a row on the Tuscan bench.
“La Gumina made his Serie A debut with me at Palermo, so I already knew him well, as I’d spotted him in the youth academy,” Iachini told Sky Sport Italia.
“He looked good in training and I thought he’d suit the tactics we were using for this game. We had started strong and went behind against the run of play, but the lads did well to stay focused and believe to the end.
“We need this kind of mentality to succeed in the top flight.”
