Mihajlovic: 'Milan anxiety'

Sinisa Mihajlovic believes Milan suffered from “anxiety after taking the lead” in their 1-1 draw with Torino.

Carlos Bacca scored right after coming off the bench, but Daniele Baselli snatched an equaliser.

“We had a good game, but after the goal we just stopped playing. It’s as if we got nervous at taking the lead,” the Coach told Mediaset Premium.

“Only after Baselli’s equaliser did we wake up again. It’s probably an issue of character and anxiety. At the end of the game, I am forced to always repeat the same things. I see this as two points dropped."

Mihajlovic did make a tactical switch, adopting the 4-3-3 system, but created few chances.

“We did well, but there’s no such thing as a system that makes you win or lose a game. Today we were certainly more solid, thanks also to the work of the wingers.

“The fans are disappointed, but so are we. We try to grow and improve, game after game.”

After one point from three rounds, does Mihajlovic still feel President Silvio Berlusconi has faith in him?

“The President is an entrepreneur of football. I have a good rapport with him and there’s never been any problem. We exchange ideas and I like to confront my thoughts with those of Berlusconi and Adriano Galliani, but I have to make the decisions because that’s what I’m paid for.”
