‘Milan, turn whistles into applause’

Milan Coach Sinisa Mihajlovic asks his team to ‘transform the whistles into applause’ and says ‘I’ve never looked for excuses.’

The Rossoneri Coach is under pressure for his job after consecutive draws against the bottom two in Serie A, Carpi and Verona.

They face Sampdoria in the Coppa Italia at the Stadio Marassi on Thursday, with reports suggesting a defeat could spell the end of Miha’s reign.

“We must have the personality to transform the whistles into applause, we have to think positively and think only about playing,” the Serbian Coach said at today’s Press conference.

“If you can’t bear these things you have to change jobs, but everyone at Milan has the personality to be able to play with whistles. Maybe it’s not nice to hear them but they aren’t affected by whistling.

“I've never looked for excuses and alibis, I don’t think the players want to make excuses.

The only way out of these controversies is to win, when we go on the pitch we have to be brave and strong, and win. Milan is a great club, we all have to do well.

"You have to ask the players about a lack of personality, I don’t go into the changing room much, I give them total freedom, and these are things that concern the changing room.

"We are fourth in Italy for chances created, the team is offensive. But we don’t score a lot, we are 13th when it comes to finishing what you create.

“You can’t say that the team doesn’t create chances, our attackers must be more clinical.”
