Gosens enjoys 'having something to play for'

Atalanta wing-back Robin Gosens praises goalscorers Ruslan Malinovskyi and Papu Gomez after the 2-1 win against Parma and looks forward to ‘a big show’ against Inter on Saturday.

Gosens almost scored with the last kick of the game but La Dea had already done enough to turn the game around with Malinovskyi’s and Gomez’ goals in Parma.

“It was a very important win because we want second,” Gosens told the club’s official website. “It was a pity that I missed my last opportunity, but I was very tired.

“I’m happy for the win, though. Two incredible goals. These two players can make the difference when they want, especially in games where we suffer like on this occasion.”

Atalanta struggled in the first half and Gosens admitted Parma gave La Dea a stern test at the Ennio Tardini.

“Parma played an excellent game. We suffered a lot in the first half,” the wingback conceded. “In the second half we did better and luckily scored twice. I repeat myself: this win was very important.”

Inter arrive in Bergamo on Saturday, when the result between the two rivals decides who end second in Serie A.

“We have a beautiful game in the last round. It’s nice to have something to play for. Now, we have a big show that awaits us on Saturday night.”
