Sinisa Mihajlovic has set Fiorentina's agenda for the new season. “We want to finish in the top six and get back into Europe.”
The Viola have failed to qualify for continental competition for the last two campaigns, leading to anger from fans and questions from their players.
“Compared to last term, it has rained every single day of our pre-season training camp. Maybe it'll bring us luck,” smiled the Coach.
His team was held to a 0-0 draw by Torino on Friday, denied by a goalline clearance and the woodwork.
“I am fairly happy. We tried to play despite the state of the pitch in this rain and we did not concede a goal. It was a real game and I am pleased with the physical fitness of my players.
“Our objective is certainly to qualify for the Europa League. We want to finish in the top six and get back into Europe.”
