Torino drop 'fat' Maxi Lopez

Torino have decided to sell Maxi Lopez after Sinisa Mihajlovic criticised the striker’s weight again.

Over the summer, the Coach famously said Maxi Lopez was so overweight that “it’s like carrying around a washing machine.”

The 32-year-old has made just 10 competitive appearances this season, scoring one goal in the Coppa Italia.

Although Andrea Belotti is suspended today, Maxi Lopez was still not called up for the trip to Bologna.

“It’s because the washing machine is still there,” explained Mihajlovic to reporters.

A January exit seems inevitable, but he’s not the only one, as Josef Martinez is also on the way out.

According to Tuttosport, Torino are hoping to replace both with Sampdoria benchwarmer Ante Budimir.
