It is reported that Maxi Lopez has seven weeks to lose seven kilos or he will be fined by Torino.
The Argentine forward has featured in two of the Granata’s three Serie A matches so far this season but will miss Sunday’s encounter with Empoli.
On Saturday, his Coach Sinisa Mihajlovic described the 32-year-old as being ‘in bad shape,’ before adding that ‘if he doesn’t lose weight, he won’t play.’
Now, Calcio News 24 are reporting that disciplinary procedures will take place against the player should he not return to match fitness in the allotted amount of time.
Lopez is said to have been put on a special diet which will require him to lose one kilo every week, for the next seven weeks.
