MILAN – Sinisa Mihajlovic has held his press conference before the team left for Sicily where they will face Palermo on Wednesday.The coach had this to say: We definitely have get our concentration back for the game tomorrow. If we do not do well in Palermo no one will remember the derby, I think with the latest results we have gained an understanding of what we can do and we must repeat the performance of the derby. If we can bring home the result it will be a consequence of how we played. They are a good team and have good players from the midfield up, but if we play as we know we can we can win. The results help especially if you win against teams ahead of you, we have improved a lot and I hope that these results will give the lads more conviction. This victory should be the effect of a bottle being uncorked then we will wait for tomorrow to see if there was in it champagne, a good sparkling wine or a simple lemonade.
The team has great quality but we are not always been able to show that and this depends on our mental approach. I believe that these victories have given us great confidence and it must not take a step back. Tomorrow we will have to write another page in history. I believe that we must think of ourselves, now we are finding a good continuity, but to recover the points missed in the first half of the season needs a great deal of continuity. I think our dressing room is very united and compact with the coach, wants revenge and to show what our values are. We have pushed on from Roma.
We need to be ready at Palermo, the derby is set aside but we must not forget that we are still chasing third, and tomorrow we have to get the three points. We must be ambitious and we are focused on ourselves, we will have a number of positive results, but first tomorrow is a crucial match.
