Fares’ Season Is Over Following Serious Knee Injury, Torino Unlikely to Sign

Mohamed Fares’ season is over before he even played a single minute for Torino following a serious knee injury.

As reported by Italian newspaper Tuttosport (via LazioNews24) earlier today, the 25-year-old Algerian full back ruptured the cruciate ligament of his right knee in a clash during a training match, forcing him to the sidelines for a number of months.

As such, Fares’ season is already over, meaning that he won’t play a single minute for Torino following his loan move from Lazio last week.

Considering the situation, Torino are not planning to activate the €6 million buy option attached to his loan deal, meaning that he’ll return to Rome at the end of the season.

The Algerian full back has suffered a number of serious injuries in the past. He missed 11 games for Genoa this season due to a muscle injury and missed 178 days of action for SPAL back in 2019 following a cruciate ligament rupture.
