Mihajlovic: 'Maxi Lopez can't lose weight'

Sinisa Mihajlovic criticised Torino after their 2-0 defeat at Bologna and warned “we’ve been trying for months to get Maxi Lopez to lose weight.”

Blerim Dzemaili bagged a brace at the Stadio Dall’Ara this afternoon, but Maxi Lopez was dropped despite Andrea Belotti’s ban.

“We’ve been trying for months to get Maxi Lopez to lose weight,” the Coach told Rai Sport.

“If a player wants to be in my team, he has to respect the rules. Until he can do that, he will not be called up.

“We played in a very predictable manner today. We always want to win, but we’re a team with strengths and weaknesses, good at attacking and less so when it comes to controlling a situation.

“We tend to concede a goal and get stuck. We know it’s a defect and have to work on it. We cannot always attack full throttle, there are times in a game when you have to soak up pressure, otherwise we concede too easily.”
