Torino dismiss coach Mazzarri after humiliating defeats

Torino parted ways with experienced coach Walter Mazzarri on Tuesday after three successive defeats, the last two of which saw them concede a combined 11 goals.

The 58-year-old Mazzarri will be replaced by Moreno Longo, a former coach of the club’s youth side, and leaves with Torino 12th in Serie A.

Torino suffered their heaviest ever home defeat last month when they were beaten 7-0 by Atalanta. The final straw for Mazzarri came with Sunday’s 4-0 loss at strugglers Lecce.
