Gomez opens up on ‘unexpected’ Atalanta exit

Papu Gomez says it was sad to leave Atalanta after having arguments with Gian Piero Gasperini: ‘I rejected a move to the MLS.’

The Argentinean playmaker joined Sevilla from Atalanta in the January transfer window.

“Of course, I am sorry, I would never imagine such a scenario, but these things happen in life,” he told ElDesmarque.

“You can have arguments with other people. In my case, it happened with the coach. At that point, everyone took his path.

“I could have joined to the MLS, but it was not the right moment.

“I can still play at a high level in a competitive league like La Liga. My objective was to play in a good European league and continue with the national team.

“When Sevilla called, I did everything possible to finalize the deal.”
