Cerci: 'Toro stab in the back'

Milan winger Alessio Cerci said jeers from Torino fans were “like a stab in the back.”

He was insulted throughout last night’s 1-1 draw at the Stadio Olimpico in Turin, when he returned to face his former club.

“The jeers from the Curva Maratona are like a stab in the back that I never would’ve expected,” wrote Cerci on Facebook.

“Martin Luther King said there could be no deep disappointment without deep love first. I try to console myself with that thought.

“I keep working and push forward this time too.”

Cerci perhaps should’ve expected some negative reaction, as when leaving for Atletico Madrid his girlfriend wrote on social media that “we’re finally going to the football that matters.”

He has struggled badly since pushing for a transfer away from Torino in the summer of 2014, spending six months in Madrid and then loaned to Milan.
