Quagliarella Departs

As expected, Torino striker Fabio Quagliarella has completed a deadline day move to former club Sampdoria.

The Italian international had enjoyed a positive return to the club he started his career with, and ended last season with 13 goals in 33 appearances.

However, Quagliarella's relationship with the Torino supporters suffered what turned out to be irreparable damage when he appeared to apologise to Napoli fans after scoring against them.

Despite numerous attempts to apologise to the supporters, Quagliarella never wore a Torino shirt again after that night in Naples.

In some respects, it is rather unfortunate that a player who scored the winning goal in Toro's first derby victory in 20 years will not be remembered fondly. However, Quagliarella's decision not to celebrate that goal may have been an early sign of what was to come.

Elsewhere, Toro have signed a pre contract deal with Argentine striker Lucas BoyÄ— who will join the club in July from River Plate. Fringe players Sanjin Prcic and Vasyl Pryima have joined Perugia and Frosinone on loan deals.

Forza Toro
