Gasperini sorry for Samp push

Gian Piero Gasperini says he is ‘truly sorry’ for pushing a Sampdoria official during Atalanta’s 2-1 Serie A win on Sunday.

Gasperini pushed Samp secretary Massimo Ienca to the ground as he made his way down the tunnel at Marassi, having been sent to the stands.

“I’m not proud of the example that I set my players, the club and all the fans,” the Coach told his club’s official website.

“I’m truly sorry for what happened in Genoa yesterday, all the controversy it’s caused and how the important result we earned from an compelling match, played at a high level by both teams, took a back seat.”
