Serie A TIM


Sinisa Mihajlovic gives his thoughts on the team's 2-1 victory over Genoa in Serie A TIM:

"Today we had to win and we have done that. We played well and we gave away very few chances. Matches have to be killed off though otherwise the result is always hanging in the balance. The team played well against a side that makes it hard for you and frustrates your play. We deserved to win. I only talk based on what I see out on the pitch. Looking at our rivals, we are in better shape than them at this moment in several areas. If we keep these performances going, and keep improving in front of goal, we will also be in the hunt for third place".

"We know that Napoli and Juventus are the two strongest teams. Napoli have incredible potential in attack with Higuain. But it won’t be easy for them facing us. It will be a great match and we will play our game as we always do. When the team is playing well, it is difficult to change. Abate and Antonelli have played well. I see De Sciglio as a starter and today he took his chance. This is the right attitude. Every time a player is called upon, he has to give his all. Like I said after the Frosinone match, if Honda continues to play like this, he will always play. In the past he and Montolivo were criticised. But they have shown that with work and sacrifices, you can turn jeers into cheers. I congratulate both of them. At Napoli we are going for the win, as I have always done in my career. Whoever doesn’t give their all for the entire match, won’t play."
