Darmian: EL the icing on the cake

Matteo Darmian has claimed that Torino’s Europa League place is ‘the icing on the cake’.

Il Toro were handed a place in the competition next season, despite finishing the campaign in seventh place.

After Parma were barred from the tournament because of an unpaid tax bill, Giampiero Ventura’s men were given the spot instead.

“This is the icing on the cake,” he told Tuttosport. “This is the crowning glory of what has been a great season.

“I haven’t spoken to my teammates yet, but I definitely will soon. I have played in Europe before, and it is a wonderful experience.”
