Miha: 'Icardi never my captain'

Sinisa Mihajlovic loses Leandro Castan for the Inter game, but the Torino Coach admits Mauro Icardi “would never be a captain in my team.”

It kicks off on Wednesday at 19.45 UK time (18.45 GMT), click here for a match preview.

Defender Castan is not in the squad making the trip to San Siro due to a left thigh problem, joining Mattia Aramu on the treatment table.

Someone who is in the squad is Maxi Lopez, who famously refused to shake Icardi’s hand before kick-off because the Inter forward is married to his ex-wife.

Meanwhile, Mihajlovic spoke to Mediaset Premium about Inter ultras calling to revoke Icardi’s captaincy.

“So far Icardi has shown more than Andrea Belotti, but the Italian is improving all the time. I am interested in training great players, then I will be the one to modify their personality.

“I have never been a captain, but I can assure you I was followed more by my teammates than whoever was the captain.

“I think Icardi would never be a captain in one of my teams, but the players are the ones who choose who they want as a leader.”

Torino squad for Inter: Cucchietti, Hart, Padelli; Ajeti, Barreca, Bovo, De Silvestri, Moretti, Rossettini, Zappacosta; Acquah, Baselli, Benassi, Gustafson, Lukic, Obi, Valdifiori, Vives; Belotti, Boye, Falque, Ljajic, Maxi Lopez, Martinez
