Pellegri, 5 million investment in just 158 ​​minutes

The striker arrived in Turin this summer for € 5 million. So far no goal and only one game as a starter

Torino this summer had to deal with a real end of an era. Belotti’s farewell. The man with 113 goals in 251. A booty that made him enter by right in the history of the grenade club, from which he separated at the end of last season. Torino therefore had to find a quick response to fill such an important void. Sanabria was already in the squad and the granata decided to invest in the 2001 class Pietro Pellegri, who had already walked the grass of the Olimpico-Grande Torino in the previous six months but as a player on loan from Monaco. 5 million to the Monegasque club. Demonstration of a choice aimed not only at the present but in particular at the coming years. Too bad that so far the expense has not brought to the fruits of him. Soon to judge Pellegri’s performance, but surely we can discuss the lack of employment and the difficulty in appearing in the eleven owners.

Pellegri, Juric prefers Sanabria…. and Seck

158 minutes in 7 matches in this league. Definitely a time below expectations. Juric prefers Sanabria, whose loot from a single goal does not justify the manager’s choice to rely on the Paraguayan. And even when he decides to give a change to the starting attack, the Croatian prefers Seck, as on the last occasion. So far only one match played from the first minute, in the 1-0 victory over Lecce and the feeling that he will still have to wait to be seen again on the pitch with a decent playing time. Faced with Napoli and Juventus, Juric will hardly let himself go to experiments, but the last word is not yet said. Pellegri will now be busy with the Under 21 team and will try to return to the club with even more motivation.
