Torino, Mazzarri: “Nkoulou asked not to play. Roma have tried to acquire him”.


Torino manager Walter Mazzarri was asked about the situation of Nicolas Nkoulou following his side’s 2-1 victory over Sassuolo in his post-match press conference. These are his words:

“He told me he wasn’t mentally prepared for the match and asked me not to take part in the match.  Out of respect to his teammates, I didn’t allow him to play. To date, the president has kept his promises, but I know that Roma have tried really hard to acquire him. However, we want to keep him”.
