Gomez ‘sad and happy’ to leave Atalanta

Out-of-favour Atalanta captain Alejandro 'Papu' Gomez described his mixed emotions on Tuesday as he prepares to leave the Serie A club he helped take to the Champions League for the first time.

The Bergamo outfit have reportedly reached an agreement with La Liga's Sevilla for the sale of the attacker who has fallen out with coach Gian Piero Gasperini.

"It's a mixture of feelings, after so many years in this city," the 32-year-old Argentine told Sky Sport Italia.

"I'm sad, and also happy. Sometimes things happen and go a certain way, but I would do it all again because we wrote the history of this club. I leave Atalanta at the top in Europe."

"The fans? I'll miss them a lot, Bergamo is in my heart. We will surely see each other again soon," added Gomez, who has scored one goal in five appearances for Argentina.
