Sirigu: 'Torino earned it, but...'

Salvatore Sirigu admits Torino’s 1-0 victory over Inter was wide open and could’ve gone either way, “but that’s what football is about.”

The goalkeeper performed a series of great saves and was also aided by the woodwork on Ivan Perisic and Rafinha.

“Considering the way we played and worked so hard, we deserved the victory,” Sirigu told Sky Sport Italia.

Time for Buffon to go

Gianluigi Buffon has been a loyal and wonderful servant for the Azzurri, writes Ciro Di Brita, but Italy simply must move on now without him.

Gianluigi Buffon was talked out of international retirement by interim boss Luigi Di Biagio, believing a player of his stature shouldn’t have the final image in an Italy jersey be the tears after defeat to Sweden in the World Cup play-offs.

Return to Serie A for Hart?

Joe Hart could return to Serie A next season, as the former Torino goalkeeper is open to another move abroad after West Ham United.

The England shot-stopper was loaned out by Manchester City to Torino last term.

He preferred to remain in the Premier League this time around and has been dropped to the bench at West Ham.

It’s expected Hart will return to Manchester at the end of the season and, according to the Daily Mail, he is ready to go abroad again.

Montolivo: ‘We did all we could’

Riccardo Montolivo believes Milan did everything they could to find a breakthrough against Torino, only to be denied by luck and some inspired goalkeeping.

Italy shot-stopper Salvatore Sirigu had an impressive game in the Granata goal as Vincenzo Montella’s team lost yet more ground in the race for European places.

“I think today Milan did everything possible to get a goal,” Montolivo insisted post-match.

“In our way, we found Sirigu who was great and we were lacking luck.

Milan stalled by Torino

Salvatore Sirigu and Gianluigi Donnarumma performed stunning saves, but it was a disappointing goalless draw between Milan and Torino.

The Rossoneri were forced into a tactical and personnel reshuffle by late injuries to Fabio Borini and Lucas Biglia, but rarely seemed a cohesive unit.

Sirigu had several crucial saves and was let off by some poor Nikola Kalinic finishing, but late on Donnarumma had the toughest block on Andrea Belotti’s glancing header.

It’s the fourth consecutive Serie A match at San Siro without a goal for Milan.

Serie A Team of Week 6

With several “imponderable elements” over the weekend in Serie A, Dave Taylor selects his best XI from Week 6’s action.

Salvatore Sirigu [Torino]

From the start he had to be alert stopping almost an own goal from Lyanco. Afterwards his succession of superb saves and blocks prevented a cricket score. Could do little about Paulo Dybala and Miralem Pjanic’s goals but was outstanding with his fantastic reaction save on Medhi Benatia’s downward header. Exceptional.

Torino Player Ratings

Torino had a Derby della Mole nightmare against Juventus, but did anyone emerge with credit in the Football Italia player ratings?

Words: Ciro Di Brita

Salvatore Sirigu – 8

Toro's ‘keeper was a busy man, making save after save to keep the score line somewhat respectable. If it hadn’t been for the former PSG shot-stopper, this would’ve been an historic beating for the Granata. Imagine if it’d been Joe Hart…

The Torino Project

Far from just a selling club, Torino have become a sporting and business model to follow, writes Greg Murray.

With the Derby Della Mole approaching, all eyes are on joint league leaders, and perennial winners, Juventus. However, across the other side of town, away from the headlines, the Old Lady’s weekend rivals Torino have been steadily building a team capable of bettering the draw they achieved in last year’s fixture. You can bet on their chances of upsetting the Bianconeri using the Paddy Power promotion code.

‘Torino aiming for Europa League’

Salvatore Sirigu admits Torino “are aiming for the Europa League, while knowing it will be difficult”.

The Granata lost Davide Zappacosta and Marco Benassi in the summer, but kept hold of the likes of Andrea Belotti, leading some to tip them for European qualification.

“It’s right that there’s a lot of ambition, but I’m not used to making proclamations,” Sirigu said in an interview with Sky.

Mihajlovic: 'Benevento unlucky'

Sinisa Mihajlovic admits “Benevento absolutely did not deserve to lose, but last season Torino lost this sort of game.”

It looked to be heading for a goalless draw until Iago Falque finished off an inspired Adem Ljajic through ball in stoppages.

“Football is made up of incidents. I acknowledge Benevento had a good game and absolutely did not deserve to lose, so I can well understand their disappointment,” the Coach told Sky Sport Italia.
