AC Milan coach Sinisa Mihajlovic believes his side are facing a defining spell in their season following Saturday’s narrow 1-0 win over Torino at San Siro.
Luca Antonelli’s first-half goal extended Milan’s unbeaten run to nine Serie A matches and moved them within a point of rivals Inter, who occupy the fifth and final European place.
After last week Monday’s 1-1 draw at title-chasing Napoli, Mihajlovic suggested Champions League qualification was a realistic ta
rget and, after Saturday’s win, he warned that the next few weeks will be crucial.
“We deserved the win, even if we suffered a little too much,” he told Sky Sport Italia ahead of league meetings with Sassuolo, Chievo and Lazio in March.
“What was fundamental was having the right attitude, everyone being ready to fight hard and work for the result. If we want to climb the table then we have to continue like this.
