Ventura: 'Toro can upset Milan'

Giampiero Ventura is confident Torino can cause an upset against Milan tomorrow amid reports he stormed out of training.

The tactician has a fiery temper and Tuttosport claims he was infuriated by mistakes made in the Friday evening training session, storming out after shouting at players Giuseppe Vives, Matteo Brighi and Rolando Bianchi.

“We need to be wary,” said Ventura. “The game that decides our safety could be the one against Genoa, but all four remaining fixtures are important for us. It doesn’t matter who we are playing against.

“We must do well to deal with three games in a week, as we are unaccustomed to midweek rounds. I think we can do something good in Milan tomorrow.

“Obviously it’s positive for us that Milan are without Riccardo Montolivo, although they have several great players who can make the difference.

“Valerio Di Cesare will start. He has unfinished business with Robinho from the first match...”

Milan won 4-2 in Turin back in December and Robinho was on target after dribbling straight past Di Cesare.

“I’ll decide tomorrow whether to use Brighi from the start or not. He was out for six weeks, but now has enough training under his belt to be match fit.”
