Torino coach Mihajlovic hails Vanja Milinkovic-Savic for Roma Coppa win

Torino coach Sinisa Mihajlovic was delighted with their Coppa Italia win over Roma.

The Granata caused a huge upset with their 2-1 victory at the Olimpico, a stadium where they also beat Lazio 3-1 in Serie A last week.

“It was a great victory," Mihajlovic told Rai Sport. “I am happy for the qualification, but above all the performance, the attitude and character shown by the team.

“I don't like to talk about individuals, but if I have to, then Simone Edera and Vanja Milinkovic-Savic really stood out today."

“Over the last 10 days, we've won twice at the Olimpico and had two draws in Milan. The team is improving and I like it, so we must continue like this and make the step up in Serie A quality too.

Torino hadn't been in the Coppa Italia quarter-final for almost 10 years, but then we hadn't won away to Lazio in 24 years, so taboos are made to be broken."
