Torino boss Walter Novellino admits he's disappointed new striker Davide Di Michele will miss the first months of the season due to suspension.

"If only we could call on David Di Michele for the start of the season - he has such speed and quality on the ball that allows him to solve many problems," he said.

"We are chasing Zlatan Ibrahimovic, but he isn't answering our calls. He must have given us the wrong number!"
