Mihajlovic sets top-three target for Milan

4 August 2015

MILAN (Reuters) - Sinisa Mihajlovic has set AC Milan a top-three finish as the target for his first season in charge of the seven-times European champions. The Serbian coach, who resurrected Sampdoria during one-and-a-half seasons with the Genoa club in his previous job, became Milan's fourth coach in just over 18 months when he took over last month. Milan have had a miserable past two seasons, missing out on European football both times, and the club leadership has looked rudderless. "Our goal is to finish inside the top three in Italy, we know it will be difficult, that all the other teams have strengthened their squads but we have also built a strong team," he told reporters in Munich where his side face Bayern Munich on Tuesday in a pre-season tournament.
