In praise of SPAL and Semplici

While Atalanta grabbed all the headlines and plaudits, Elio Salerno argues Leonardo Semplici’s SPAL deserve more credit for an incredible story.

Leonardo Semplici has worked wonders at SPAL and what he has achieved can be seen as a minor miracle in the shadow of Gian Piero Gasperini’s Atalanta.

Semplici was appointed in December 2014 with the club struggling in the third division and has since played a pivotal role in helping turn their fortunes around.

Promotion to Serie B followed his first full season in charge and then at the first attempt they achieved what was deemed unthinkable, a dramatic promotion to Serie A for the first time in 49 years.

Petagna: Milan broke promises

Andrea Petagna claims Milan broke ‘promises’ when they re-signed Alessandro Matri in 2013. “Like a child who had their dream taken from them, I cried.”

Petagna began his career at Milan and looked destined for a first-team berth at San Siro, but he was forced to join Sampdoria late in the summer 2013 transfer window after they bought back Matri.

“Milan are a family for me, it’s the team where I grew up,” the 23-year-old told DAZN ahead of Sunday’s Serie A clash between SPAL and his formative club.
