Former Lazio coach Sven-Göran Eriksson has revealed that he had to convince Sinisa Mihajlovic to play in defence. “He became one of the best in the world”.
Eriksson moved to the Biancoceleste after a successful stint at Sampdoria and brought the former Yugoslavia international to the Italian capital for €17m.
The Swedish coach followed up his Coppa Italia triumph with the Blucerchiati by leading Lazio to a domestic double in 1999-00.
