Ventura not focused on derby

Giampiero Ventura has claimed that his Torino side are not thinking of the derby at the weekend.

Il Toro play Juventus on Sunday, but must first face Verona in a game the Coach has insisted his men will be fully focused on.

“We’ll start work for Juve on Thursday,” he told a Press conference. “First we have this challenge. We are not even using the word ‘derby’.

“We want to take full points in both games, that’s the dream.

“Verona are a compact team who defend well and can be dangerous on the counter-attack.

“They have already played big teams like Milan and Juve and have done well.

“We’re going to have to be very careful.”
