Torino sporting director Davide Vagnati said ‘the whole city is behind us’ and hopes to ‘make them proud’ in the derby against Juventus.
The Granata prepared in silence for the big game against the Old Lady and Vagnati claimed they are ‘focused’ on the task in hand.
“There hasn’t been much talking, it was very quiet in the bus to the stadium too. The team is focused, we know how important the game is for our position in the table, the fans and the way forward for the rest of the season,” Vagnati told DAZN.
“We know the whole city is behind us and we want to do them proud. There can be five substitutions, so it’ll be a tight game that can be decided at any moment.
“The coach made this strong decision to field the three forwards and Verdi earned this opportunity, now he has to deliver.”
