Sinisa Mihajlovic: Serbian manager sacked by Torino

Sinisa Mihajlovic has been sacked as manager of Torino after 18 months in charge of the Italian club.

Torino are currently 10th in Serie A but have won only five of their 19 league games this season.

Mihajlovic was sent to the stands in his last match as manager – a 2-0 defeat to city rivals Juventus in the quarter-finals of the Italian Cup.

In a statement on their website Torino thanked Mihajlovic, 48, for his “commitment and passion”.
