Ljajic back for Torino

Walter Mazzarri has named his first Torino squad, with Adem Ljajic returning but Andrea Belotti still out.

The former Inter Coach replaced Sinisa Mihajlovic yesterday, and faces Bologna this weekend in his first match in charge of the Granata.

The Serb was dealing with an injury crisis in his final few weeks, and Mazzarri is still without Belotti, as well as Antonio Barreca, Cristian Ansaldi, Lyanco and Simone Edera.

However, Ljajic is back in the squad for the first time since the defeat to Napoli on December 16.

Too much expected of Torino

Sinisa Mihajlovic and his Granata players are accused of underperforming, but Richard Hall notes perhaps the expectations were set too high.

Sinisa Mihajlovic was in buoyant mood before his team lost to Napoli this weekend. He was quick to stress that whatever the result, there was no crisis in his team, regardless of the daily complaints on the front page of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport.

Torino lose Ljajic until 2018

Torino midfielder Adem Ljajic’s 2017 appears to be over, after he suffered a thigh injury.

The Serbian international came on for Mirko Valdifiori at half-time in the loss to Napoli, but picked up a muscular injury.

Today the Granata have confirmed that Ljajic missed training, with scans revealing “a strain to the right biceps femoris muscle”.

That rules him out of tomorrow’s Coppa Italia match with Roma.

Mihajlovic: 'Napoli tough to contain'

Sinisa Mihajlovic admits Torino defending wasn’t up to par in the 3-1 home defeat, “but when Napoli play like that, they are difficult to contain.”

Kalidou Koulibaly nodded in from a corner after four minutes, before Piotr Zielinski and Marek Hamsik strikes.

“Unfortunately, when Napoli play like that, they are difficult to contain. They are stronger than us, they scored within four minutes and were 3-0 up by half-time,” the Coach told Mediaset Premium.

Napoli option for Ljajic

Adem Ljajic could be heading to Napoli in an exchange of loans with Emanuele Giaccherini or Arkadiusz Milik after another Torino row.

Serbia international Ljajic was dropped from the squad in the 3-1 win over Lazio on Monday evening.

Coach Sinisa Mihajlovic explained it was because of “unacceptable behaviour” in training.

Although the former Roma and Inter forward is in the side for today’s meeting with Napoli, there’s no guarantee he’ll be taken straight back into the starting XI.

Mihajlovic: 'Ljajic bad behaviour'

Sinisa Mihajlovic shrugged off the refereeing controversy in Torino’s 3-1 win at Lazio, but confirmed Adem Ljajic was dropped for “bad behaviour.”

The victory at the Olimpico was overshadowed by controversy, as Lazio were denied a penalty for Iago Falque’s handball and in the ensuing protests Ciro Immobile was sent off for jerking his head towards Nicolas Burdisso.

Mihajlovic: 'Toro less attacking'

Sinisa Mihajlovic admits Torino have “gained more balance when defending, but lost something in attack” after another draw with Atalanta.

This was their fourth consecutive Serie A stalemate, as Josip Ilicic cancelled out a Nicolas N’Koulou header.

“The draw was the right result between two teams who played open and attacking football,” Miha told Sky Sport Italia.
