Mazzarri returns to Torino bench

Torino confirmed Coach Walter Mazzarri has passed all his health checks and returned to work today after a scare last week.

The tactician felt unwell after last Friday’s training session and went to the Molinette hospital in Turin.

Although he felt better that evening, the Torino medical staff insisted he undergo a series of checks and signed him off work.

Mazzarri has a history of heart issues going back to his time at Napoli.

“Torino Football Club are happy to announce that Coach Walter Mazzarri has completed all the tests and from today has regularly resumed his professional activity.”

Assistant manager Nicolò Frustalupi was on the bench for Monday evening’s 0-0 draw with Cagliari.
