It was an interesting turn of events Sunday as Afriyie Acquah’s side came up against Sassuolo in the Italian Serie A.

The manager of Torino went into a scuffle with his assistant after the wrong man was substituted in the course of the game.

Afriyie Acquah started the game on the bench and Coach Sinisa Mihaljovic decided to bring him on in the 81st minute.

Apparently, the Serbian Coach wanted to substitute Joel Obi for Acquah but the assistants sanctioned a substitution for Tomas Rincon.

When the substitution was made Mihaljovic was seriously furious and could not hide his frustration as he shoved and pushed his assistants Attilio Lombardo and Luca Castellazzi.

It was quite interesting as Joel Obi who stayed on the pitch scored the third goal.

The coach who confirmed to apologizing to his assistant said after the game:

“Matches are decided by the smallest details and you can't afford to make the wrong substitution. Maybe I didn't make myself clear but for me it was an obvious change,' said Serb Mihajlovic.

“I apologised to Luca and Attilio in the changing-room. I'm sorry for my reaction but that's how I am.”

Torino disposed of Sassulo with an absolute beauty from Andrea Belloti in the first and the other two came by way of Ljacic and failed substitute John Obi.

This puts the side in 6th place after two games as the side drew 1-1 with Bologna
