Fiorentina coach Mihajlovic furious with Mutu agent claims

Fiorentina coach Sinisa Mihajlovic has blasted the agent of Adrian Mutu over last week's media conference.

Mihajlovic is angry over several claims made by Giovanni Becali.

"I had a row with Adrian when we were both players, but then formed an excellent rapport," said Mihajlovic.

"As far as I know, that rapport has been suspended for 10 days. It's too early to talk about anything else. I rang Becali yesterday and he didn't answer, so I called Adrian and got him to hand over the phone.

"I told Becali that, despite what he said in that Press conference, I've got guts. Plenty of them. It's not true that Mutu wasn't in the squad for Bologna, as he was going to play, but left before the training session and I couldn't bring him along.

"Yesterday was the Orthodox Christmas and he wished me well. That is all. I told him what I thought and nothing more, so it's not true that we hugged to put it all behind us, which is what I read in the papers. Today is Mutu's birthday, so I send him my best wishes, even if I doubt he'll have a happy one."
