Atalanta coach Gian Piero Gasperini has praised captain Papu Gomez and claimed the Argentine ‘could play in any team in Europe’.
The 32-year-old has established himself as an important member of the Orobici since he arrived from Metalis in September 2014.
After four successful seasons under Gasperini, he has started the fifth with four goals in three games, contributing two assists in the process.
“Papu is a great champion, he has reached an incredible value,” Gasperini said at a press conference. “He could play in any team in Europe.
“He could play for Inter or Juve too. This year he can also play in the middle and give us a hand even in defence.
“But he’s best when he attacks.”
Tomorrow, La Dea face Napoli at the San Paolo and Gasperini has confirmed Josip Ilicic will be back in the squad.
