Atalanta boss Gasperini delighted with Lookman’s form


Atalanta head Coach Gian Piero Gasperini says he’s satisfied with the performance of striker Ademola Lookman.

Gasperini praised the 25 year-old Lookman, who has been in superb goal scoring form.

The Super Eagles forward grabbed the second goal for Atalanta against Sampdoria, adding to his tally in the Serie A this term and he’s one goal behind Napoli hit man, Victor Osimhen.

Gasperini, just before the clash had said; “He played right away, he was always involved in matches.” “He immediately showed that he has the experience, and he had significant growth in clubs where they know football.

“He was at Leipzig, then he played in England. There he was employed a bit distant from the goal, but I immediately realized that he had the right characteristics for what we’d been looking for for some time.

“(Sporting director) Lee Congerton was very good, he had already seen the team play from February-March: there were important negotiations with other players, but he was always convinced of the characteristics of Lookman and how I played and how I wanted to use him. He immediately entered well.”
