Torino boss Marco Giampaolo appears to have ruled out the chances of reuniting with AC Milan midfielder Rade Krunic.
It seems as though Krunic no longer has a major part to play at Milan having become a square peg for a round hole as we dissected in our latest feature, and he continues to be linked with a possible exit this month.
Calciomercato.com reported yesterday that the Bosnia international is a target for Torino to strengthen their midfield as their head coach Marco Giampaolo wants to reunite with him, and that Saturday night’s match at San Siro will be the perfect occasion for their technical director Davide Vagnati to meet his Rossoneri colleagues.
Giampaolo spoke to the microphones of Torino Channel during his pre-match press conference ahead of tomorrow night’s game, and while he spoke highly of Krunic he appears to rule out any chances of him making the move north.
“I wish him luck for a speedy recovery from Covid. I coached him at Empoli, I then found him at Milan but I never coached him there because he had injuries,” he said (via MilanLive).
“He has grown a lot because experiences make you improve and when you play in a great team you increase your level of self-esteem. He is a strong player, with quality, but he will not come to play for Torino.”
🤔 What exactly went wrong against Juventus? Is it right to blame lack of depth?
