Sinisa Mihajlovic believes Sampdoria are “on the right track” after beating Verona 4-1 in the Coppa Italia.
Since taking over from Delio Rossi, the Coach has earned two Serie A draws and last night’s victory.
“We are on the right track and I applaud all the lads,” said Mihajlovic after setting up a Round of 16 encounter with Roma.
“They deserve the credit, because I’m not the one who steps on to the pitch. We got off a strong start and were able to score two early goals, but then we stopped for a while before resuming in the second half with another two goals.
“I have great guys at my disposal and I tried to change their mentality, letting them understand they can attack without fear.
“The fans must stick close to these players, because they are proving that they wear the jersey with pride.”
