Walter Mazzarri believes Andrea Belotti has “rediscovered the form of old,” but was not happy with the first half Torino performance against Frosinone.
The Granata had kept a clean sheet for 599 minutes of Serie A football until Luca Paganini’s header from a corner, but the Belotti brace after the break turned the game around.
“I didn’t like the first half at all,” the Coach told Sky Sport Italia after a 2-1 win.
“We are fighting for the top spots, therefore we have to play good football. We went behind on a set play, but I appreciated the reaction to win it.
“Belotti deserved a third goal. He’d been playing very well in recent weeks and it just wasn’t going into the net, but I knew it had to sooner or later.
“I think he deserves to be in the Italy squad, but obviously Roberto Mancini can focus on that and I think about Torino. I do believe Belotti has rediscovered the form of old.
“We’ve been working on his technique in training, his first touch and control. I did the same work after training sessions had concluded with Edinson Cavani at Napoli.”
