Longo: 'Toro can't drop guard'

Moreno Longo has warned Torino that ‘we mustn’t make the mistake of lowering our guard’ against already-relegated SPAL later.

Torino will secure their place in Serie A for another season with victory over SPAL, but Longo remains wary of facing a side who have ‘nothing to lose’.

“It’s a very important game, so we’ll have to approach it with a fighting spirit,” the coach said at a press conference.

“Our motivations for this game are absolutely strong. We mustn’t make the mistake of lowering our guard.

“This is a game where our opponents have nothing to lose. We can’t afford to drop our concentration levels.

“I’ve analysed what they did this season. They beat Atalanta and Lazio and they won our first meeting.

“They have quality, so we must be able to put on a great performance.”

On the other hand, the Granata can count on Armando Izzo again after two games without the centre-back.

“He’s recovered and returned to the squad.”
