Mihajlovic happy with 'his' Viola

Sinisa Mihajlovic is confident that he'll be able to silence his critics as Coach of Serie A side Fiorentina.

The former Lazio player replaced Cesare Prandelli on the Viola bench in 2010, but he's had a tough spell so far in Florence.

The side struggled to perform last season and his decision to turn down the Inter job in the summer wasn't exactly welcomed by some Fiorentina fans.

"Last season I coached a team which was built for Prandelli, this season that is different," insisted the former Catania boss.

"I want to start a new cycle at this club and I hope that I'll be able to do that," he continued.

"A team has to mirror the football of its Coach. My side must be aggressive, nasty, hungry for victory and unable to give up. We'll do it…"

The Stadio Franchi outfit started their League campaign with a 2-0 win over Bologna at the weekend. They are away to Udinese in Week 3.
