Mihajlovic hits out at Fiorentina fans after victory over Genoa

Fiorentina coach Sinisa Mihajlovic hit out at jeering fans after their 1-0 win over Genoa.

Mihajlovic's job was hanging by a thread and today's 1-0 win over Genoa was their first in over a month, yet the crowd still chanted calling for his dismissal.

"Despite the scepticism, the lads proved they are a united and compact group," said Mihajlovic.

"We're only two points off Europe and today played four summer signings. Apart from against Udinese and the first half with Juventus, we have always played well.

"We're taking it one game at a time now, but deserve to have two or three extra points in the table. We dominated today against a Genoa side in good shape and should've gone 2-0 up with Alessandro Gamberini.

"It's a shame about the jeers and my players were sad at the final whistle, because obviously they were upset at being insulted after a victory. Of course the fans have the right to do what they want.

"I believe the supporters have a problem specifically with me, so let them aim their insults at me and focus on supporting the team. This isn't helping anyone."
