Since the team is in advanced talks with Marco Giampaolo, Moreno Longo says it was his ‘last match’ on the bench at Turino.

Longo was brought back in February to replace Walter Mazzarri but he was not confirmed in the job after three wins, four draws, and nine defeats.

“This was my last match in Turin,” Longo told Sky Sport Italia after a 1-1 draw in Bologna, via Football Italia.

“I want to thank all those who allowed me to come here and all those who accompanied me on that adventure. I was brought here and ordered to save Turin from the danger of relegation. That is what I wanted to do.”

Torino sports director Davide Vagnati had effectively confirmed Giampaolo ‘s arrival before kick-off after ending his contract with Milan by mutual consent.

“Giampaolo is certainly a mentor we respect very much and a very good tactician. He is still negotiating with another side, so it wouldn’t be right to think too much about it,” When asked directly if Giampaolo would be the next boss in Turin, Vagnati told Sky Sport Italia.

“Let’s just say we admire him very much as a trainer.”
