Fiorentina coach Sinisa Mihajlovic wants fans to focus their anger on him.
Mihajlovic's players were booed off the pitch after their draw with Catania on Saturday.
“If the fans have to protest, then take it out on me rather than the team. The players have to be left alone,” said the under-fire Coach.
“The fans can do anything and have the right to all of that, but I will continue along my path, as this is part of my job. I’m used to it and hope to send my calm vibes to the team.
“I know that in Florence they always want to win, so it’s not easy to work in these conditions. I am always in the dock, but I am accustomed to it.”
