Mihajlovic: 'Juve deserved the draw'

Sinisa Mihajlovic admits “Juventus deserved the draw,” but also berates Fiorentina for not taking advantage of the situation.

Marco Motta's own goal had put the Viola in front in Turin within four minutes, but a late Simone Pepe free kick took Artur Boruc by surprise in the 1-1 result.

“Did we drop two points? No, in the second half Juventus deserved the draw,” Mihajlovic told Sky Sport Italia.

“It's a shame, as in the first half we had many opportunities to finish off the game. Against sides like this if you don't put the result beyond doubt, they will find a goal eventually.

“This lack of finishing is a problem we've had since the start of the season. At the back we did well to double up on Milos Krasic, so he never had the one-on-one opportunities.”

The injury crisis deepens every day, as Alberto Gilardino went off with a suspected thigh strain, while 18-year-old Michele Camporese was stretchered off with cramp.

To make matters worse, Per Kroldrup is still out on a two-match ban and Dias Felipe will be suspended following his red card in Turin.

“I don't know what happened with Felipe, but he only played 13 minutes, so that must be some kind of record,” smiled the Coach.

“We have to keep going with Alessandro Gamberini and Camporese, who did very well and just had cramp due to the tension of the occasion.

“I believe in my work and in my team. We could've got better results against Milan and here this evening, so if we carry on like this then we will pick up the points.”
