Gomez: ‘Not crazy to think about Scudetto’

Captain Alejandro Gomez has claimed that Atalanta’s performances have allowed them to dream about winning the Scudetto.

After leading the Orobici to the quarter-finals of the Champions League and with Gian Piero Gasperini’s men currently fourth in the League, the captain has revealed that it “wouldn’t be crazy” to think about winning Serie A.

“Linda [his wife] always tells me that she wants to win the Scudetto and the Champions League,” he told Cronache di Spogliatoio on Instagram. “She is very ambitious. She said: ‘I still don’t understand why you are not fighting for the Scudetto’.

“I reply: ‘Calm down, we are Atalanta’. Like President [Antonio] Percassi, who asks for salvation every year.

“Probably, if we didn’t lose some stupid points along the way, we could have five or six points more and be closer to the Scudetto.

“There are still 12 or 13 games left. And with everything we are achieving, it wouldn’t be crazy to think about the Scudetto.”

Atalanta are currently 14 points behind the Old Lady at the top and are three points above Roma at fifth in the battle of a place among the top four, qualifying for the Champions League.
