Torino head coach Ivan Juric has claimed that there was an ‘enormous gap’ between his side and AC Milan during last night’s game.
The scoring began when Christian Pulisic tapped in a lovely feed from Ruben Loftus-Cheek to make it 1-0, but a goal from Perr Schuurs did make life quite difficult for Milan.
Nonetheless, a penalty was converted by Olivier Giroud and then Theo Hernandez dinked a Leao pass over Milinkovic-Savic to give the Rossoneri a two-goal lead heading into the break.
Leao was chopped down when attempting to cross a ball in the second half giving Giroud another opportunity from 12 yards, and he converted it emphatically to finish the scoring.
Juric spoke to DAZN after the game to assess what was a tough evening for his team, with his comments relayed by MilanNews.
On the gap between the two teams: “I don’t even want to comment on the refereeing incidents because the gap was really huge and for the first time in these two years I’ve seen my team clearly inferior to their opponents.”
Is it a problem with the approach? “We could have played better technically, but I saw a huge gap in speed, acceleration, physical strength, technique. Practically everything.”
Torino usually play excellent matches at San Siro: “The worst match since I’ve been manager of Toro. We deservedly beat Milan twice last year. There was no competition today.”
What do you have to start from? “I have to review the game well, analyse it and then make the right decisions because today was a very bad signal”.
