Coach Sinisa Mihajlovic stressed just how important Belotti and Ljajic are to Torino after their 0-0 draw against Pescara.
Torino have only gained 5 points from their last 5 games, a very poor return when all things are taken into consideration.
Mihajlovic pointed out that had Belotti’s shot ricocheted into the back of the net off of the post the result would have drastically changed their points tally and standing in the Serie A table.
Talking to Sky Sport admits that Torino are struggling with their attacking department:
“When Belotti came on as we saw how important he is for us, and having both him and Ljajic off is similar to removing the Dybala and Higuain from Juventus. “
Mihajlovic trusts that the Torino will hit a new gear soon and change their start to the season;
“It is a difficult time when you must stand firm and tighten your teeth like we did today. It’ was a performance of grit and desire. We are trying to understand new concepts to the team after they have done completely different things for the last five years under Ventura.
“I am sure that once the injured players recover and come back into the squad, they will learn these concepts. You will will see a different Torino than the one you saw today. The championship is still long”
