‘Three to four weeks for Belotti’

Andrea Belotti’s doctor says his injury should last “three to four weeks”, but fears the Torino and Italy striker could be rushed back.

Il Gallo went off with a knee injury against Verona at the start of this month, ruling him out of the Azzurri’s last two World Cup qualifiers.

Giampiero Ventura is now sweating over whether the striker will be available for the play-offs against Sweden and his doctor fears he could be rushed back.

Manolas suffers thigh strain

Roma are likely to be without Kostas Manolas for their Champions League clash with Chelsea on Wednesday after he suffered a thigh strain.

Manolas pulled up an hour into Roma’s 1-0 defeat to Napoli over the weekend, and a statement on the Giallorossi’s official website confirmed “a Grade I strain of his left adductor longus (thigh) muscle.”

A grade I injury usually indicates a recovery time of around a week, meaning the Greece international could also miss Sunday’s trip to Torino.

Mihajlovic: 'Torino dominated'

Sinisa Mihajlovic insists Torino were “dominant” against Crotone, despite fighting back twice to scrape a stoppage-time 2-2 draw.

“We played the game that we needed to, dominating for 90 minutes and creating many chances,” the Coach told Sky Sport Italia.

“We should’ve been more determined in attack, as always, but we played on without losing our heads. In the two goals we conceded, it was mainly individual errors.”

Dramatic Toro point at Crotone

Torino came back twice to snatch a point in stoppages, as Crotone were left to rue what might’ve been.

The Squali took a deserved lead through Marcus Rohden’s solo effort, curling in off the inside of the far post with his right boot.

After goal-line technology confirmed Alex Cordaz had successfully clawed an Adem Ljajic free kick away just in time, Iago Falque’s curler got Toro back on level terms.

New contract for Belotti?

Andrea Belotti is reportedly on the verge of signing a new and improved contract with Torino, despite interest from Milan, Chelsea, Manchester United and PSG.

Il Gallo has five goals and two assists in eight competitive games this season, but is out for a month with a knee injury.

He only signed his latest contract – complete with €100m release clause valid for non-Italian clubs – in December 2016.

Yet Tuttosport claim he is ready to sign a new deal that would almost double his current salary to €3m per year plus bonuses.
