The captain of the Granata has declared that his side will be playing for the win against their rivals this weekend.Torino and Juventus will do battle in another Turin derby in the upcoming round of fixtures in the Italian Serie A.
As always, many words are being said in the lead up to the contest, with the latest coming from the captain of Toro Alessandro Rosina, who does believe that his side have a genuine chance of overcoming their fierce rivals.
“We want to win because we are angry,” Rosina stressed in an interview, as reported by Corriere dello Sport.
“We are playing really well at the moment, so hopefully we can continue our success this weekend.
“We are coming off some consecutive results, which is a good thing, perhaps one of the best,” he added.
“Juventus may be angry for whatever reason too, but we want to win it more.
“They are a great side, so we know that we will have to play extremely well to attain a result,” he continued.
Rosina had a final comment to make about the fact that he has been left out of Walter Novellino’s starting line-up on more than one occasion this season.
“If you do not play, then you cannot help but feel unhappy.
“I’m not sure what the coach has in mind for this weekend, but I sure am ready to contribute.
“If I were Novellino, I would play me.
“I'm not the coach, but certainly I do play playstation often, and I always seem to start there,” he jokingly concluded.
Torino are unbeaten in their past seven matches, although having said that, they have recorded only the one victory against Udinese two weeks ago.
