AC Milan Sack Mihajlovic, Appoint Brocchi
AC Milan have sacked Sinisa Mihajlovic, replacing him with youth team coach Cristian Brocchi.
statement from the struggling Serie A giants on Tuesday read: “Sinisa Mihajlovic has been relieved of his role as AC Milan coach.
“The club would like to thank Mihajlovic for the dedication and hard work carried out this season.
“Cristian Brocchi will now be in charge of the first team until the end of the season. AC Milan would like to welcome Mr Brocchi and wish him all the best.”
Speaking after Saturday’s 2-1 loss to Juventus, Serbian Mihajlovic acknowledged he could be fired.
“This year at Milan I’ve felt removed, not because of the pressure from what’s been written,” he said.
“I believe in myself but in trying to find the right solutions I feel we’ve tried everything.
“Like every other coach in the world, I’m judged on the work done and results obtained.
“If in the seven remaining matches, also the Italian Cup, or even before, if we mess up it’s right for the coach to be the first to pay for it.
“It’s always been that way. I’ve always said, there are two categories of coach, those that have been sacked and those that will be sacked.”
Mihajlovic took over from Filippo Inzaghi back in June and has not lasted 10 months on the job.
