Atalanta Reward Manager Gian Piero Gasperini With New Long-term Contract

share on:

Gian Piero Gasperini has been rewarded with a new contract for guiding Atalanta to the brink of European qualification.

The 59-year-old head coach left Genoa last summer to take control of their Serie A rivals in Bergamo, and with three games of the season remaining the Nerazzurri are six points clear in the last Europa League spot.

Gasperini oversaw a six-game winning streak in the autumn and they have beaten top-three clubs Roma and Napoli this term, also holding leaders Juventus to a 2-2 draw at the Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia last month.

A statement published on atalanta.it said Gasperini, who has also managed Inter Milan and Palermo, had agreed a new three-year deal with the option of a further 12-month extension, keeping him in Bergamo until at least 2020.
