Although we are sure you know everything about Piero Gasperini, allow us to do just a quick introduction to a man that changed football game in the last few seasons.

Gasperini is 62 years old Italian manager that has spent all of his career in Italia.

Managing Crotone, Palermo, Inter, and from 2016 Atalanta where he finally presented himself to the world.
