Atalanta’s Gasperini Aims for Fourth Place: “De Ketelaere? He’s Confident”


Gian Piero Gasperini hailed Charles De Ketelaere’s performance in their 3-1 win over Lazio: “He is doing well, feeling confident.” At the conclusion of La Dea’s triumphant victory against Maurizio Sarri’s Biancocelesti side, featuring goals from Pasalic and De Ketelaere’s brace, Gasperini shared his thoughts with DAZN:

Analyzing the Match Against Lazio: Gian Piero Gasperini, the coach of the Nerazzurri, reflected on their performance against the Biancocelesti: “We are in a great moment. Tonight, we won convincingly against a strong team like Lazio. Where can we reach? We have significant room for growth, and we will see what happens in the upcoming matches.”

Preparation and Execution: Further elaborating, Gasperini explained, “We prepared well for the match against Lazio. In the first half of the season, we had some difficulties against similar teams. Today, we were effective in wide areas, and it went well.”

De Ketelaere’s Performance: Regarding De Ketelaere, Gasperini commented, “He is doing well, feeling confident. It’s evident even from the penalty kick… with Koopmeiners and Muriel absent, there was no doubt. He feels really good, attempts challenging plays, and plays with great confidence. Physically, he handles challenges well, and we are very pleased.” Gasperini continued praising Charles De Ketelaere: “He is becoming a reference point for the team. Is the bet already won? There’s time, but we are on the right path.”

Fourth Place Aspirations: In a light-hearted comment on the pursuit of the fourth spot in Serie A, Gasperini stated, “If I were to sign? Definitely, we are aiming for it. The season is very long, and there are many teams ready to compete for it.”
