Bari have snapped up defender Marco Pisano from troubled Torino.

The Serie outfit have signed Pisano on loan from Torino, sending winger Filippo Antonelli the other way.

The 28-year-old is a versatile defender who can play as left-back or centre-back and has been at Torino since January 2008.

He demanded a transfer earlier this month after a group of Toro fans attacked the team during dinner at a local restaurant.

"It was terrible seeing my wife and one of our two children, who isn't even four years old, crying with fear. It was unjustifiable violence from a psychological as well as a physical point of view.

"I am no longer prepared to passively accept what is happening here. I need to protect my children and my wife above all else.

"This is why first thing in the morning I'm going to the training ground, getting my stuff and leaving."
