Mi­ha­jlovic sets top-three tar­get for Mi­lan


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. "We signed some im­por­tant play­ers like Luiz Adri­ano and (Car­los) Bacca...We have been work­ing to­gether a month and we are at a good point."

Mi­ha­jlovic did not want to com­ment on Sun­day s an­nounce­ment that Italy s for­mer prime min­is­ter Sil­vio Ber­lus­coni has signed a pre-sale agree­ment to sell 48 per­cent of the club to a group led by Thai busi­ness­man Bee Taechaubol. "That s not a ques­tion for me but for the club and (chief ex­ec­u­tive) Adri­ano Gal­liani and Ber­lus­coni," said Mi­ha­jlovic.
