Gasperini in addition to having spared himself an unwelcome surprise will be able to have his skilled and enlisted player as well as fairly rested.
Atalanta and Koopmeiners can breathe a good sigh of relief. The Dutch midfielder, after the blow he received to the head that forced him to leave the field prematurely during the Nations League match during the match between his national team and Poland, left the retreat and returned home.
As reported by‘Echo of Bergamo, everything was resolved with a fright. The Nerazzurri midfielder had left the pitch on a stretcher after a tough game battle with Linetty. Koopmeiners, having received first aid, had also tried to stay on the field but afterwards he collapsed again on the ground. Inevitable the change and the intervention of the doctors who transported the player to the hospital for checks. From the beginning there was the feeling that it was a head injury but only the exams averted further problems. The results of the exams were comforting. The boy is fine and has left the retirement of the Dutch national team. Van Gaal will not risk it. Result: Koopmeiners will miss the match against Belgium and will be available again in view of the resumption of the championship that will see Atalanta opposed to Fiorentina.
A double sigh of relief also for Gasperini, who in addition to having spared himself an unwelcome surprise will be able to have his skilled and enlisted player as well as fairly rested. The coach had carved out a role for the player capable of enhancing technical and ballistic skills. By the coach’s own admission, Atalanta does not shine with offensive solutions and has changed skin. He defends more effectively and attacks by bringing fewer men close to the opponent’s penalty area. A rewarding choice, taking advantage of the characteristics of the Dutch “all-rounder” who often and willingly used movements and space to successfully attempt a personal solution. Four, the goals achieved so far. A decisive contribution that will also continue to dispel the tension and fear after what happened on the pitch in Warsaw.
