Defensive headache for Longo

Torino are closing in on their worst defensive record since patron Urbano Cairo took over and adding to their woes, Moreno Longo could be without both Armando Izzo and Lyanco against Hellas Verona.

The Corriere di Torino claims Longo have concerns at the back, as Izzo will miss the match against Verona, whilst Lyanco is in doubt.

Koffi Djidij has not impressed in recent weeks either and the Torino coach must sort out the defence to prevent setting negative records at the Grande Torino this term.

Official: Lyanco extends at Torino

Torino have officially extended their contract with Brazilian defender Lyanco to June 2024.

The 22-year-old therefore adds two seasons to his previous deal with the Granata.

His profile shot up over the last few weeks thanks to strong performances with Brazil at the Under-20 World Cup.

Lyanco joined Toro from Sao Paulo in 2017 for €7m plus bonuses and 10 per cent of a future sale.

There were several offers this summer, but President Urbano Cairo remained firm and pledged to extend his contract.
