Report: No consequences for Gomez

Gian Piero Gasperini and Papu Gomez have reportedly cleared the air and the dispute between Atalanta’s coach and captain will ‘have no consequences’.

Corriere di Bergamo writes about a ‘tough confrontation between Gasperini and Gomez’, but claims the dispute will ‘have no consequences’.

Gomez clearly refused to follow orders when the coach asked him to stay at right in the first half of the Champions League encounter, and the Argentine was consequently substituted at half-time.

Atalanta’s attacking players have struggled in recent weeks and this was the case also against the Danes.

The newspaper reveals the on-field confrontation continued in the dressing room at half-time and Gasperini chose to bring the captain off.

But the report reveals the clash erupted due to a desire to bring home the three points and that there will be no consequences after the heated situation.

The match ended in a 1-1 draw and Atalanta sit second in Group D with eight points, one place and point above Ajax.

La Dea travel to Amsterdam next week for the decisive fixture in the group stage.
