Trouble seems to be brewing with the Granata management. It is said that Torino are looking to
replace current head coach Mazzarri following lackluster performances especially wit the 1-0
defeat to Udinese.

Gatusso left willingly the Rossoneri after a mutual consent even after a fifth place finish in the

the Serie A table to Inter Milan. Questions were asked as talisman Cristiano Ronaldo was rested
for the match.
