Sinisa Mihajlovic: Sunday's match will certainly live long in the memory


Milan coach Sinisa Mihajlovic is looking forward with optimism to his first Serie A game in charge of the club.

The Rossoneri kick-off their Serie A campaign with a very difficult away game against Fiorentina, the club Mihajlovic coached in the 2010/11 campaign.

But the Serbian is confident ahead of the game as he believes that Milan can take all three points from the Stadio Artemio Franchi.

"Sunday's match will certainly live long in the memory," Mihajlovic told reporters.

"This morning, I spoke to Arrigo Sacchi and he reminded me that his first match in charge of Milan was also away at Fiorentina.

"The fixture list has given us a strong opponent at a tough ground, but it's better this way I think and at least we can show what we're capable of.

"Fiorentina will want to pick up all 3 points, but we also want to win. They have changed their coach and they have lots of young players. Our only objective tomorrow is to win and we have to give a good and complete performance.

"I want to point out that I never said that I only focus on the result and not the performance. Milan's history is characterised by results through good performances.

"A team has to take to the pitch with clear ideas of what it needs to do. Against Perugia, we played well and we were clinical in front of goal.

"I am a former Fiorentina coach and I thank them for having given me the chance to coach there. It was a tough period, but it helped me to develop.

"I believe that we're on the right path. There will be tough moments, but we must always come off the pitch with our heads held high knowing that we have given everything.

"We know we can do better and we will improve. I am happy that the players are starting to develop an attacking mentality. I am confident and we have prepared well for the match.

"As for me, well, I always try to improve and I believe that I am fair, sincere and direct. I like being this way. It's true that I expect respect, but I also give it. As a coach I try and stay up to date and improve; you never stop learning."
