Mazzarri has lost Torino

After two years of his tenure, Walter Mazzarri has taken Torino as far as he can, argues Tommaso Adami.

On Tuesday night, Torino were only four minutes away from punching their ticket to the Coppa Italia semi-finals. However, in the first minute of stoppage time, Hakan Calhanoglu's deflected shot tied the game for Milan, who ended up winning 4-2 in extra time. Unfortunate, to say the least, because getting away with a win at San Siro would have meant the world for Walter Mazzarri and the struggling Granata.
