Medina – September 14, 2019 Atalanta manager, Gian Piero Gasperini, has revealed why he rejected Internazionale Milan’s job proposal over the summer transfer window.“Clearly, after Chievo went down to 10 men, we pushed a bit more just to be on the safe side, but then they lost confidence and enthusiasm.“Hopefully this can be a turning point for us.
