Atalanta manager Gian Piero Gasperini has been hailed as the mastermind behind Ademola Lookman’s meteoric rise in world football, MySportDab Reports.

The Nigerian winger, who had previously struggled to find consistency, has blossomed into one of the best wingers globally, thanks to Gasperini’s patient and meticulous coaching.

Lookman’s journey has been anything but straightforward. After a challenging spell at RB Leipzig, he embarked on loan moves to Fulham and Leicester City, where he continued to grapple with making a significant impact. However, his fortunes changed when he joined Atalanta two years ago.

Under Gasperini’s guidance, Lookman’s game has transformed dramatically. His standout moment came during the Europa League final, where he netted an incredible hat-trick against Bayer Leverkusen. The 26-year-old finished the season with an impressive tally of 16 goals and 8 assists, cementing his status as a top-tier winger.

Gasperini’s approach to coaching Lookman was akin to that of an artisan craftsman. The manager patiently worked with the player, emphasizing consistency and participation.

Gone were the flashes of brilliance followed by periods of invisibility; Lookman now consistently contributes to the game, both in matches and training sessions.

The Super Eagles forward’s performances haven’t gone unnoticed. He is a frontrunner for the CAF Player of the Year award, a testament to his impact for both Atalanta and the Nigerian national team. His maturity, hunger for the ball, and improved teamwork have elevated him to new heights, making him a key asset for club and country.

As the football world eagerly awaits the announcement of the CAF Player of the Year, Ademola Lookman stands tall, a testament to the transformative power of Gasperini’s coaching philosophy. His journey from struggling loanee to world-class winger serves as an inspiring tale for aspiring players everywhere.
