Official: Torino appoint Mazzarri

Torino have officially confirmed the appointment of Walter Mazzarri as the club’s new Coach.

It was confirmed earlier today that Mihajlovic had been dismissed, following last night's 2-0 defeat to Juventus in the Coppa Italia.

Mazzarri quickly emerged as the favourite to replace him, and that has now been officially confirmed.

"Torino Football Club announces that it has entrusted the role of Coach of the first team to Mr Walter Mazzarri," a statement on the club's website confirms.

"The new Coach - to whom President Urbano Cairo extends the most cordial welcome, and his best wishes for good work - will take today's scheduled behind closed doors training session at the Stadio Filadelfia."
