Torino president Cairo ready to hand player bonuses to fans

Torino president Urbano Cairo is ready to take a survival bonus away from the players and hand it to the Granata support.

Cairo snapped: "I should give the bonus to the fans, perhaps in the form of a discount on their season ticket. They are unique and utterly special.

"It is not a cliché when I say they are our 12th man on the field and give the team a great hand by supporting us throughout.

"This is one of the reasons why I wanted Sunday's tickets to be the same special low price that we had against Catania."

Torino went on to win that match 2-1, but they are still in the thick of the relegation dogfight.

"We are in a situation that nobody wanted, but we cannot dwell on the negatives. We must take inspiration from Il Grande Torino."
