Sinisa Mihajlovic criticised Pep Guardiola’s argument with Nigel de Jong. “Football isn’t dancing and fouls are part of the sport.”
The row occurred at half-time in the tunnel during Milan’s 3-0 Audi Cup defeat to Bayern Munich, as an early De Jong tackle forced Kimmich to limp off.
“I didn’t see the challenge,” insisted Coach Mihajlovic on Sport Mediaset.
“Football isn’t dancing and fouls are part of the sport. This is also why games like this cannot be called friendlies.
“In any case, it was one-way traffic because of how good our opponents were. They are solid and road-tested, while we didn’t put in any intensity.
“We’ve got to improve and we are working to improve.”
