Musso reacts to Atalanta draw, Man Utd defeat

Atalanta goalkeeper Juan Musso is happy to have helped La Dea collect one point against Villareal and shares his thoughts on Man United’s defeat.

La Dea picked up a 2-2 draw against Villareal in their opening Champions League game of the season.

Musso played a key role with a crucial save in the stoppage time, allowing La Dea to take one point home.

“I feel happy because I helped the team. From behind, you can see how everybody sacrifice themselves,” the Argentinean goalkeeper said.

“We played against a tough opponent and I am happy we return home with one point.

“Personally, I am satisfied, it was a dream to make my Champions League debut, I gave my best, as I always do.”

Atalanta’s stalemate followed Manchester United’s 2-1 defeat against Young Boys, so the Swiss side are now the Group F leaders, followed by La Dea and the Yellow Submarine.

Gasperini ‘convinced’ Atalanta could beat Villareal

“That’s Champions League, anything can happen on every pitch. Every match can change. There are the best clubs in Europe and everybody is respected,” Musso said, commenting on United’s defeat in Switzerland.

Atalanta host Young Boys in Bergamo on September 29 before travelling to Old Trafford on October 20.

La Dea’s coach Gian Piero Gasperini praised Musso during his post-match interview, saying that the goalkeeper ‘saved Atalanta’.

However, the coach admitted he had thought his side could win the game when Francis Coquelin was sent off with five minutes remaining.
