Mihajlovic respectful of Juve

Fiorentina boss Sinisa Mihajlovic believes Juventus have what it takes to win the Scudetto this season.

Interviewed in Tuttosport ahead of Saturday's game between the two sides, Mihajlovic was very complimentary about how Juventus have turned things around under Gigi Del Neri.

"I will try to go and win with Fiorentina in Turin. I send messages to my team through the Press. I say that I never play for a draw.

"Juve are organised and compact like all the teams Del Neri has coached. He has the best attack in Serie A. It's healthy.

"We know that they can put us in difficulty, but we can also hurt them."

Asked about reports linking Juventus with a bid for Alberto Gilardino, Mihajlovic said: "Then they can give us Krasic, Chiellini, Aquilani and Felipe Melo.

"For me Krasic is already among the No 1s [in the League] for what he has shown up until now. We will try and stop him. I won't say how because I don't want to reveal too much, but I am convinced that my Fiorentina will manage to stop Krasic."
