“This is going to be a very difficult game, even more difficult compared to Genoa,” said the Coach referring to Monday’s Derby della Lanterna victory.
“Maxi Lopez is out and Shkodran Mustafi is suspended. I have three doubts for the line-up, one in midfield and two in attack.
“We must be concentrated. I use the stick method when things are going well and the carrot when they are going badly.”
There are reports Samp have agreed terms to extend Mihajlovic’s contract until June 30 2015.
“Let’s achieve safety first, then we can talk about it.”
