Torino president Cairo standing by Nicola after AC Milan thrashing

Torino president Urbano Cairo says there'll be no knee-jerk reaction to last night's 7-0 home thrashing by AC Milan.

Cairo insists he was happy with the attitude of the players and will stand by coach Davide Nicola.

He stated, "We are focused on Saturday. Nicola has made his choices, he has always made them well.

"There will be no resignation, now we remain focused.

"I see the team every day, I told the boys to raise their heads. Unfortunately, these things happen: we made many comebacks, at 0-3 we attacked and we took counter-attacks.

"We have to go and get the points where it is possible: we don't load excessively, the important thing is to reach the end of the season in a certain position."
