Atalanta manager Gian Piero Gasperini has showered encomium on Ademola Lookman following his remarkable display against AC Milan on Saturday night.
Lookman scored a brace in the 3-2 victory over the Rossoneri at the Gewiss Stadium.
The 26-year-old netted the game’s opening goal on 36 minutes.
The winger gave Atalanta the lead for the second time in the game 10 minutes after the break after Olivier Giroud equalised for the visitors late in the first half.
Gasperini was quick to eulogise the Nigerian for his amazing performance.
“He (Lookman) never did anything, then! Lookman cannot play every game like tonight, or he’d be amazing, but he is doing very well this season,” the gaffer said after the game.
“He has some dips and troughs, but that is normal. What he must learn from this group is to share the same spirit, determination and realise when it’s not your day, then you have to work for the team.”
The former Leicester City player has now scored six goals in 16 league appearances for La Dea this season.
