Lopez: ‘Toro can do great things’

Torino forward Maxi Lopez believes the Granata can do ‘great things’ ahead of their Europa League clash with Athletic Club.

Giampiero Ventura’s men will welcome the Spanish side tomorrow, aiming to put themselves in position to qualify for the Last 16.

“This is a prestigious competition,” Lopez told assembled media in a Press conference ahead of the game.

“I am very happy to form a part of this group: I think we can do great things.

“In my opinion we do not have to think about Bilbao because they are a strong and complete team. This will be a very difficult match and we are aware of that.

“We are excited and the support of the fans is important too. Athletic are a team accustomed to these kind of occasions, I realised that when I played for them.

“They are an opponent who will never give up during the 180 minutes [of the tie] and we will have to do the same.”
