Sinisa Mihajlovic Has Promised Fiorentina Fans Too Much - Giancarlo Antognoni

Legendary Fiorentina midfielder Giancarlo Antognoni believes that current coach Sinisa Mihajlovic has promised too much too soon in charge at the club. The Serbian took over from now Italy boss Cesare Prandelli this summer, but a weekend loss to promoted side Lecce has many fans worrying about their prospects this season.


"Perhaps he has promised too much to the people, some of them exaggerated ones," said Antognoni according to TMW.

"Now if he doesn't arrive in the top four..."

The 1982 World Cup winner is still hopeful for the new season, despite some apparent doubts over the coach.

"He has just begun, but he seems to be an impulsive character to me," he continued.

"He took a team that had five optimal years with Prandelli, except for the last part, but they still gave a strong impression.

"I hope they can improve their position [tenth place in 2009-10], they have the advantage of not playing in Europe."
