Torino is in advance negotiations with Marco Giampaolo, while Moreno Longo says at the Torino bench this was his ‘final match’.
Longo arrived at the club in February to replace Walter Mazzarri but he was not confirmed in the job after three wins, four draws, and nine losses.
Longo told Sky Sport Italia, via Football Italia, after a 1-1 draw in Bologna, “this has been my last match at Torino.”
“I want to thank all who have allowed me to come here, as well as all those who have accompanied me on this adventure. I was brought here and told to save Turin from the relegation hazard. I managed to achieve that.”
Before kick-off, Torino sports director Davide Vagnati had basically announced the arrival of Giampaolo after he had ended his deal with Milan through mutual consent.
“Giampaolo is definitely a mentor we very admire and a really good tactician. He is already negotiating with another side, so it wouldn’t be correct to talk too much about it,” Vagnati told Sky Sport Italia when asked specifically if Giampaolo is going to be the next boss in Torino.
“Let’s only say we very much respect him as a coach.”
