Ventura Departs, Mihajlović Hired

Torino have officially announced that veteran coach Giampiero Ventura has left the club, and has been replaced by former AC Milan tactician Siniša Mihajlović.

In his five year spell at the club, Ventura oversaw a number of memorable moments including promotion, a European adventure and a long awaited derby victory over Juventus.

However, despite a promising start, last season was a disappointing one for the Granata, as Toro could only manage a 12th placed finish. Therefore, with Ventura heavily linked with replacing Antonio Conte as Italy coach, his contract has been terminated by mutual consent.

Toro president Urbano Cairo has acted quickly to replace Ventura, with Siniša Mihajlović agreeing a two year deal to become the new coach.

Mihajlović was rather harshly sacked as AC Milan coach in April, and has previously been in charge of Sampdoria, Fiorentina and Catania.
