Gasperini fights back: “The controversy from Valencia is offensive”

The Gas Gasperini case ’experienced a new chapter on Thursday with the coach of Atalanta shooting with bullet towards Valencia. Last week he acknowledged having suffered symptoms related to the coronavirus in the previous Valencia-Atalanta of Champions from last March 10. But now, and after the consequent stir caused by such affirmations, he pronounces himself again speaking of “offensive controversies from Valencia” and qualifying his own statements. “Respect all the protocols, I was quarantined like everyone else and I did it until training resumed. Going back, I imagined that the moment when I had some discomfort was the match, but I never had a fever or lung problems, “he said in statements collected by Sky Sport.

Gasperini He admitted that he never underwent the coronavirus test, and this time explained that the symptoms “were urgent on the night of the game and the next day, already back in Italy,” defining the controversy that has arisen in Valencia as “very offensive and ugly ”.

The technician refers to the fact that the group itself, after its first statements, accused Gasperini of putting many people at risk for having led theirs in that meeting of Champions between Valencia and Atalanta. The Mestalla club expressed in a statement its “surprise” that the Italian openly acknowledged that he was aware that “at least himself” was “suffering symptoms allegedly compatible with the coronavirus without taking preventive measures.”

It should be remembered that the match was played behind closed doors by decision of the Spanish health authorities and that both teams played in Milan a few weeks before another duel that has subsequently been considered by several experts as one of the main centers of expansion in the north of Italy. Valencia has always suspected that this displacement was behind the contagion suffered by about 35% of its staff.
