Bologna coach Mihajlovic happy beating Empoli: But we're not safe

Bologna coach Sinisa Mihajlovic demanded total focus after their 3-1 win over Empoli.

The result edges Bologna closer to Serie A safety.

“We are not safe yet, but we're at plus nine – considering we have a superior head-to-head record with Empoli," Mihajlovic told Sky Sport Italia.

“As I told the lads, if we win at Milan next week, then we can say we're safe in Serie A. Not even I imagined two months ago that we'd achieve this run of results, but now we want to continue like this and catch the teams ahead of us in the table.

“This squad does not belong in the relegation fight and always believed we could do it. Without taking care of the details, it wouldn't have been possible.

“The key to our success has been that we play to win, we don't play to avoid defeat."
