Miha: I'll take up boxing!

Sinisa Mihajlovic has aimed a dig Torino for not sacking him 'directly' and claims “I'll take up boxing” instead.

Mihajlovic left Torino last month after an inconsistent first half to the season, and the Coach was awarded the 'Tapiro d'Oro' by satirical TV show Striscia La Notizia, given to people in sport or the public eye that have had a big disappointment.

“I'd like to thank the President for giving me the chance to coach Torino,” he said upon receiving the 'accolade'.

Dear Urbano Cairo...

Earlier this season, Rob Gillman threw his hat into the ring for the Torino job, and he can't believe he's been overlooked in favour of Walter Mazzarri...

Dear Mr Cairo,

I am writing this letter to officially express my disappointment in not being considered for the role of Torino FC head Coach following the departure of Siniša Mihajlović. Given my 100 per cent record in job interviews, I feel that given the opportunity of an interview, it would have proved impossible to not give me the job, especially in light of my further achievements which I will now inform you of.
