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.
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.
