Gasperini: Roma like a betrayal

Gian Piero Gasperini claims it would have been ‘almost a betrayal’ if he left Atalanta for Roma earlier in the summer.

Gasperini and Atalanta are preparing for their first-ever season in the Champions League, with Luis Muriel already signed up after a successful loan spell at Fiorentina.

“It’s an exciting period for us, a beautiful summer with compliments received for our incredible season,” the Coach told Radio Anch’io Sport.

'Positive' Atalanta meeting with UEFA

Atalanta had a “positive meeting” with UEFA on potentially playing the Champions League at the reconstructed Stadio Azzurri d’Italia.

The arena is currently in the middle of massive building work, which saw an entire end bulldozed to make way for new structures.

Although the renovation is not expected to be complete until 2021, it will be divided into three phases, allowing for work on the Curva Morosini in the summer of 2020 and Ubi section in 2021.

Sacchi: 'Sarri same level as Guardiola'

Arrigo Sacchi insists Pep Guardiola never considered the Juventus job, but Maurizio Sarri is “on the same level as Guardiola, Jurgen Klopp and Mauricio Pochettino.”

The man who revolutionised football in the late 1980s and created Il Grande Milan, one of the most successful teams of all time, is friends with both Sarri and Guardiola.

Despite months of speculation, the Manchester City boss never was in talks with the Old Lady.

Sarri, not sorry

Despite the misgivings of many Napoli, Chelsea and Juventus fans, Maurizio Sarri taking the Bianconeri job makes perfect sense to Susy Campanale.

Maurizio Sarri to Juventus was unexpected – above all to those who pushed the Pep Guardiola narrative far beyond the point of improbability – but despite the protests of Napoli, Chelsea and even Bianconeri supporters, it does make perfect sense to all concerned.

Buffon's next adventure

There’s one more move in Gianluigi Buffon’s stellar career, so Football Italia Chief Correspondent Richard Hall looks at where he could go.

There are few who would begrudge Gigi Buffon one more season. The iconic goalkeeper decided not to renew with PSG this summer and instead wants to look for pastures new to ply his trade, even at his ripe old age. His agent has confirmed that he is looking through the many offers he already has, but it would be no surprise if he took his time. Despite his status as one of the best goalkeepers the world has ever seen, there are still reasons for him to be careful.

Fabian: 'Napoli will fight Juve next season'

Fabian Ruiz believes Napoli were “unlucky in Europe” and so close to eliminating Liverpool, but they will “fight Juventus for the Scudetto next season.”

The Azzurri came third in their Champions League group behind Paris Saint-Germain and Liverpool, finishing on nine points, but went out on goal difference.

Carlo Ancelotti’s men beat the Premier League side 1-0 at home thanks to a Lorenzo Insigne goal and were a late Alisson save in final group game away from knocking the eventual champions out, as the tie in Anfield also ended 1-0.

“It was a fairly satisfying season,” said Matuidi. “I played almost every game and at a club like Juve, that means a lot. We retained the Serie A title too.
