Turin, Vagnati: ‘I wanted Praet, Brekalo asked to return. On the Lukic case and my future … ‘

After the summer transfer market session, the technical director of Turin, Davide Vagnati, takes stock at a press conference on all the negotiations of the grenade company. “There is no regret for the midfielder who did not arrive. We tried to catch PraetI would have liked it, I am in love not only with the player but also with the boy, he wanted to come to the Turinbut it was neither an economic problem, nor of any other kind, it was a legitimate choice of Leicester not to let the player go. However, we are satisfied with the market. The answers in the field then give the actual value of the work one does, there will be time and way to tell if the work has been good “.

“If Torino are stronger this year or last year? If at the beginning of the market I had been asked if I would have been happy to finish him like this, I would have answered like this.”

Vagnati then revealed an anecdote: “I’ll tell you an anecdote: Brekalo wanted to return to Turin, he did everything to return but it was not correct to take him back and not for sporting reasons. We wanted to keep it last year. As a line we keep whoever wants to stay. This year I do not think that other Brekalo cases will be repeated, of the 8 players who arrived this year 3 are on loan with the right of redemption “.

“I don’t like to say if we are stronger now or if we were last year, I would disrespect those who were there last year who did well. We have high hopes and expectations on some guys and I hope we can continue with many of these players in the future, I don’t like changing a lot. ”

On Schuurs: “Schuurs is a guy we followed, it was a difficult negotiation because there were also other teams who wanted to take him. He has the physical parameters to become an important player, then it’s up to him to work, to make himself available. he wanted to come to Turin and he did everything to come to Turin and it’s not a foregone conclusion because he was a player who was important to stay on. “

On the lack of confirmations of Mandrake, Pjaca And Pobega: “Mandragora we tried to understand together with the player and the Juventus, who was willing to sell him if he could stay but he made a legitimate choice to change team and go to another club. Pjaca, on the other hand, was not redeemed for technical choice. On Pobega he did not have the option of redemption and Milan did not want to speak for a permanent transfer “.

Vagnati spoke about the situation Lukic: “Lukic remains and is an important player, he has always shown with facts that he cares for Turin. He arrived when he was a kid, he became a player who gives us a lot both on and off the pitch. Let’s say he had a stroke of sunshine due to the heat. Now everything is back, and the response of the team in Monza was also nice. Now we are talking to the agent about the renewal, he has his contract expiring in 2024 but for us he is an important player. reach an agreement”.

On the midfield: “How short is the blanket in midfield? We tried to catch Praet for this reason, then there were also other names of players that we have dealt with who have not come out. It is always better to have a few more players, but we are convinced that we have the resources to do well. Let’s take into account that there are only 10 games left in January, so we needed a player ready immediately. If Praet came it made sense, in that role we wanted Praet and we treated him only. ”

Vagnati also spoke about the purchase of Radonjic: “Radonjic is practically ours, there is an obligation to redeem. The idea Radonjic was born a couple of months before taking him. He is a strong player who threw away a little his talent, a few passages the he had. Before taking him I talked to him a lot, he wanted to come to Torino and he proved it to me by cutting his salary a lot. Although at the beginning I had some negative references about the player, in the end we convinced ourselves to take him. ” .

On the attack: “How do we make up for the absence of Belotti? With talented players and some we have, we have taken on a striker like Pellegri who is young and has great room for improvement, then there is Sanabria who is a player who gives us a lot in terms of ball management and maneuvering. “

On the goalkeeper question “The goalkeeper? Last year I saw a bit too much fury against Milinkovic-Savic who was in his first year as owner. When you entrust the goal to a goalkeeper who has never played it is normal that you run into some question marks, Vanya I think last year he had a good season, then you give us a lot also from the point of view of managing the ball and of the outputs. I think that even in these first matches he has shown that he is a reliable goalkeeper, he needs to improve but he has great room for improvement. Twin he is a guy that I respect very much, if he had had a request in Serie B we would have let him go. In Serie C we already know what he can do, in a higher category we will have done with different evaluations “.

On Juric’s requests: “If Juric asked me about the players? We got one of them and it is Karamohwhich both the winger and the central attacker can do, for the midfielder we had thought about Praetwho can also play as a midfielder in the two-player line, also because we also had other players on the frontline. ”

Finally, Vagnati spoke about his future: “My future? I am very happy to be here in Turin, to have changed a bit the inertia of the last few seasons which have not been good seasons. I would like to continue at Toro because I see that there is great room for improvement, I am a person who sleeps little at night to find solutions, I want to try to do something important for this club and for the president who has put a lot of money in Turin. In addition to the fans and history, what is indispensable in society is someone who puts in the money, luckily we have it. “
