Official: Atalanta appoint Gasperini

Atalanta have officially confirmed the appointment of Gian Piero Gasperini as their new Coach.

The 58-year-old terminated his contract with Genoa at the end of the season, with the Grifone having “made other choices”.

It was reported at the time that he had signed a pre-contract agreement with Atalanta, and that has today been confirmed.

“Atalanta BC announces that it has entrusted the technical management of the first team to Mr Gian Piero Gasperini,” a statement on the Orobici’s website began.

“A football man, a maestro of football, everyone knows him: Gian Piero Gasperini, 58, a Torinese from Grugliasco.”

The statement then gives a brief summary of Gasperini’s career to date, before closing with a good luck message.
