He was unable to work in Serie A for the rest of the season due to the rule which limits coaches to one club per season."I'm thrilled to be able to resume my career especially at Torino," said Giampaolo."It is a glorious club, rich in history, with a passionate support. On my part, there is great enthusiasm and a great desire to start again." headtopics.com
Torino, who finished 16th in the 20-team table last season, last won Serie A in 1976 and have largely lived in the shadows of their neighbours Juventus since then.They won five Serie A titles in a row during the 1940s but that run ended after 18 Torino players and officials were among 31 people killed in 1949 when their plane crashed into the Superga hill near the city in poor weather while trying to land.
