Juric: ‘Venezia deserved a draw’

Torino coach Ivan Juric admitted Venezia ‘deserved’ a point after the 1-1 draw on Monday night but stressed the Granata ‘could have had more points’.

The Granata were 1-0 up when Koffi Djidji was sent off and Venezia were awarded a penalty after 77 minutes.

Former Torino player Mattia Aramu scored his first Serie A goal and saved a point for the newly promoted side.

Rolando Mandragora was close to give Torino the win towards the end, but Juric felt a draw was the correct result.

“The match was very tough,” the Croatian told DAZN. “Venezia were behind and were trying to restart.

“We did well enough, but we could have done better. The penalty, it was the consequence of the mistakes made up to that moment.

“From the start of the season, we could have scored a few more points.”

But the coach looks at the positives and believes Toro are growing.

“We are at the beginning of a path. We did many things well, but there were several players missing. Venezia deserved a point because we suffered.”

Juric praised Djidji and stressed the defender should not ‘lose confidence’ after the incident on Monday.

“Djidji was the greatest positive discovery since pre-season. Unfortunately, he’s the protagonist of the sensational episodes,” Juric said. “But he’s playing well.

“Mistakes are made in football, I’m happy with him. He must not lose confidence and he will not lose my esteem.”

    It’s game like this that drive me crazy with this team! Torino are playing better vs. last year at this stage (1-1-4), but this was a game they had to win rather than dropping 2 points. It’s the accumulation of (dumb mental) errors here and there that bring them down.
