Miha: 'Fair Genoa derby result'

Sampdoria Coach Sinisa Mihajlovic felt the draw was the right result in a “manly” Genoa Derby.

It ended 1-1 with Samp missing two open goals and Genoa hitting the bar with the last kick of the game.

“It’s a derby, so winning it is never easy,” Miha told Sky Sport Italia.

“It was an entertaining and balanced game, while both teams played in a manly fashion.

“Perhaps we had more scoring opportunities, but in the end we were lucky not to lose, so I am satisfied with the final result.”

There were reports Samuel Eto’o had refused to sit on the bench when this game was originally rained off on Saturday.

“He did not refuse the bench. He had a few physical problems and this is why he went in the stands.”
