Torino coach Mihajlovic defends Belotti after spotkick howler

Torino coach Sinisa Mihajlovic defended Andrea Belotti after his fluffed spotkick against Chievo Verona.

The match finished 1-1 on the day.

“I feel sorry and angry, matches like these should be won," Mihajlovic told Radio Rai.

“These are dirty and difficult matches, but if you work hard you should bring home the result. We must be more effective in front of the goal, as we had a lot of clear opportunities, but if you don't score, the team loses heart and everything becomes harder.

“Belotti is our first choice penalty taker, it doesn't change anything. He should stay calm, because he looks to score with too much enthusiasm. If he stays calm, it will come.

“We were hoping he could do it so that he could start scoring again, but Sorrentino made a good save. It was a pity."
