After a good performance last weekend against Napoli, Fiorentina coach and ex-Lazio player Sinisa Mihajlovic recieved a lot of praise for his tactical approach. The Serbian is aware that the match against Lazio is very important as a win today would confirm his team's progress.

"We need to show that we deserve to be so high in the table", Mihajlovic told Repubblica.it, "This is our first test of maturity this season and we don't want to fail it. We have to repeat our performance from last week. I want to see the same attitude, then the result will come itself".

However, the coach is aware that Lazio will provide a serious test to his team, "The game will be very difficult, Lazio can strike at any time", before calling for help from supporters, "I hope the fans will give us a hand. With their help we can win this game. 3 points today would be very important".

Then, the ex-Lazio defender admitted that he still loves his former team, but will put all the feelings aside when the game starts, "I have never hidden my feelings for Lazio, but I want to win this game".

Finally, the Fiorentina manager gave his support to his opponent Edy Reja, "Reja is a very good person and a great coach. I don't understand why he is being so criticised. The only drawback is that he never won the derby, which is a very important thing for the fans".
