Players in tears as Mazzarri apologises to Torino fans after 0-7 drubbing

Torino coach Walter Mazzarri apologised to fans after their 7-0 home thrashing by Atalanta.

The Granata had never in their Serie A history conceded seven goals in a home fixture, while the final whistle blew with some players in tears.

"I have come here to apologise for an indefensible performance. I have already told the players we are going straight into a training retreat, then we'll see what happens," Mazzarri told DAZN.

“Everything was indefensible today. This performance was unjustifiable. All we can do is apologise.

"There is nothing more to say."
