Sinisa Mihajlovic: Our objective is to try and qualify for the Champions League


Milan coach Sinisa Mihajlovic says the objective for the club this season is to finish in the top three and qualify for next season's Champions League.

The Rossoneri have struggled for consistency so far this season but will be determined to take all three points when they face Genoa away from home on Sunday.

"We're focused ahead of the match and we know it would make the President happy if we could give him an early [birthday] present," Mihajlovic told reporters.

"Every match is important for us and a win would give us more confidence ahead of the next match with Napoli. We're going to Genoa with an attacking approach and to score goals.

"The second half performance against Udinese was of some concern, but we came away with a win when the match could have ended in a draw.

"We need to learn how to manage those situations better. De Jong is an important player for us and he brings charisma and character. We haven't had much time to train, but we have analysed our mistakes which were more individual than team related.

"We need to be strong in attack but also at the back in defence.

"Milan is Milan and our objective is to try and qualify for the Champions League. Then, when you reach those heights, you can think about aiming for the Scudetto.

"I am pleased that Mario is doing well on and off the pitch. For now he is doing what I expect of him, but it's only been a month, we need to wait and see.

"As a man however he has grown and as a result also as a player. He needs to act like a professional and be consistent with his performances."
