Mihajlovic is ready for Juve

Fiorentina boss Sinisa Mihajlovic insists his side are ready to face Juventus in Turin on Saturday.

The Serb tactician is under no illusion about the level of animosity that exists between the two sides even though he doesn't consider it to be on a par with Italy's other derbies.

"I didn't want to offend anyone in Florence by saying that I don't feel a special rivalry towards Juventus.

"I am someone who always says what I think. I don't go behind your back. So I say that I would be very happy to stay at Fiorentina for 20 years.

"I am staying here for as long as the club wants me. And maybe in a few years' time I'll think differently with regard to Juve.

"It will be a game between two strong teams, who want to win.

"We have prepared well for it, hoping to repeat the good showing against Milan, but trying to exploit our chances better if they happen.
