Milan coach Sinisa Mihajlovic was full of praise for Napoli coach Maurizio Sarri in Saturday's press conference at Milanello.
The Rossoneri host Napoli after last week's disappointing defeat at Genoa knowing that they cannot afford a defeat if they are to stay close to the top of the table.
"I have a lot of respect for Maurizio Sarri," Mihajlovic told reporters.
"He is doing well and will do even better. Napoli are a very organised side, with one of the best attacks in Europe. However, they do have weakness. I foresee a great match with two teams playing to win.
"It's not enough to be called Milan to win. You have to earn it out on the pitch. If we don't match our opponents in terms of fighting spirit, then we won't go anywhere. But if we play like we know how, then we can beat anyone."
"I take the chance to thank the Napoli President Aurelio De Laurentiis, who previously wanted me at Napoli. There was interest on both sides. Napoli remain a big club and I will always thank them for the confidence and the respect they showed towards me."
