Reacting to criticism of Schuster following his 'Catalan' remark after defeat at Sevilla on Saturday, Mijatovic said: "Schuster is a serious man. Perhaps people would like to see him with another face, smiling, but everyone lives their own way. He is working well and the players are very pleased with him, we are also.
"It is necessary to understand what is happening because each word he says is interpreted three different ways and so it is very complicated.
"As much as for Bernd, I suffer something similar because Spanish isn't my native tongue. We should relax about this situation.
"I understand the press, but also the trainer who when he loses a game, in a hot atmosphere like the one in Seville, it is normal that he is upset and perhaps you say something that you don't really believe."
