Mazzarri takes Torino blame

Walter Mazzarri took the blame after 10-man Torino lost 2-1 to SPAL. “I probably shouldn’t have introduced another striker, but gone for damage limitation instead.”

It was 1-1 when Gleison Bremer was sent off on 55 minutes, but Mazzarri threw on Simone Zaza and they were caught out by an Andrea Petagna header.

Petagna: 'Stand by Semplici'

Andrea Petagna scored the winner against Torino and urged SPAL to “stay with our leader” Leonardo Semplici, while discussing transfer speculation.

The Spallini were bottom of the table and without a win since October 5, but fought back to beat 10-man Toro 2-1 this evening.

“We deserved to have at least another three or four points this season, but we made up for it with an important victory away to a very impressive Torino side,” the striker told DAZN.

Mazzarri: 'Incredible Verona comeback'

Torino coach Walter Mazzarri confesses its hard to digest throwing away a 3-0 lead to draw 3-3 with Verona. “Nothing like that has ever happened to me before.”

The Granata raced into a 3-0 lead at the Stadio Bentegodi before Ivan Juric’s side scored three goals inside 15 minutes to claim a point, and Mazzarri doesn’t understand how it happened.

SPAL are rooted to the bottom of Serie A with only nine points from 16 games this term, and Semplici wants to see his players go for a win at Toro tomorrow.

Mattioli: 'SPAL trust Semplici'

President Walter Mattioli has confirmed that SPAL “trust” Leonardo Semplici and called on his players to commit to the cause.

SPAL are currently bottom of Serie A, with last weekend’s 3-1 defeat to Roma extending their winless run in the League to over two months.

However, the patron believes Semplici is the man to guide them up the table, while demanding “strength” from his squad.

“After the defeat to Brescia, we were very disappointed,” Mattioli told ItaSportPress.
