ROME – Blow and response between Gasperini and Lazio at the end of the Olimpico match ended on the result of three to three. Gasperini said that Lazio was favored by two penalties that were not there and that according to him were propitiated by the intent of cleverness, while for the biancoceleste company the penalties were clear and the Atalanta technician should not have allowed himself to attacking the Campania striker in this way. The following is the Lazio statement.
"The SS Lazio considers the statements made by Gian Piero Gasperini at the end of the match at the Olimpico today to be completely unjustified and unacceptable.
According to the Atalanta coach, the result of the tie would have been caused by the address given to the meeting by the refereeing errors related to the two penalties caused by the "clever" simulation of Ciro Immobile, an address that would have renewed the hypothetical referee errors occurred during the final of the Italian Cup won by Lazio last May.
Gasperini's statements have no justification in the light of the full and recognized validity of the rigors caused by his team. They also represent an unacceptable offense to the professionalism and fairness of a player like Ciro Immobile who has never resorted to simulations of any sort during his career.
The bitterness for a vanished victory is humanly understandable but in no way justifies the attempt to reject the result of the field by formulating imaginative and bizarre theses and questioning the seriousness of an exemplary player like Ciro Immobile ”.
Here's what Gasperini had said after Lazio-Atalanta 3-3 on Sky Sport.
"There is little to say. Atalanta dominated the game. In the first half but also in the second half. They drew thanks to the usual referee errors in their favor. Do you remember the last Coppa Italia final? It was addressed by that serious arbitration oversight of which too little is spoken.
Even today, Lazio equalized thanks to two non-existent penalties. On the first there are no arguments, Immobile plunges. She is a real crafty person. But I will tell you more, not even the second one was there since it is Immobile that put his leg in front of De Roon and then let himself go.
Why must he find faults in my team if it is always the referee who decides the matches between Lazio and Atalanta? I am fully satisfied with the performance of my boys. Now let's go to Manchester, against the team that is favored to win the Champions League, and we'll try to play it better. Whatever happens, this match will be invaluable in our team growth. In the league we are now a reality, and we will stay there up high playing in this way ”.
