Torino and Genoa players came to blows at the end of yesterday’s clash. The pitch battle came about after Diego Milito handed the Rossoblu a dramatic 3-2 win at the death, a result that pushes Torino deep into the relegation mire. Giancarlo Camolese’s bulls now face doomed Lecce next Sunday knowing Bologna have the edge over them in the final round of the season. Even if Torino win, their survival is now out of their own handsAfter the final whistle of a 3-2 Rossoblu victory, a huge fist-fight broke out on the pitch with members of both teams and even some fans who had invaded the field.

“It was the fault of an important Genoa player, Thiago Motta, who at the end went in front of our bench and told us to be quiet,” insisted Toro Coach Giancarlo Camolese.

“My men reacted to provocation from the Genoa squad. These are situations we would not like to see, as even if a team does have 30 points more than their opponents, they cannot afford gestures like that.

“It is difficult to keep calm after all the tension of the week built up

But Genoa manager Gian Piero Gasperini refused to accept such blame, countering with his own charge that Torino were simply bitter that Genoa did not roll over.

Gasperini : “I ask myself why people are amazed that we tried to win a match. Evidently we have all become accustomed to these soft performances in the final weeks of the season, but it doesn’t have to be like that. We still had an objective, as we could’ve stayed in the race for fourth if Fiorentina hadn’t equalised at Lecce in stoppages. On the one hand we can understand Torino’s disappointment and anger, but on the other they cannot blame my players for their situation. This isn’t the game where they lost their place in Serie A. Relegation is part of the sport. If they’re going to react like this then maybe we should remove relegations and just keep the same old teams, see how everyone likes that
