Okaka thanks Mihajlovic

Sampdoria forward Stefano Okaka has thanked Blucerchiati Coach Sinisa Mihajlovic for persuading him to join the club.

The player made the move to the Genoa side in January from Parma and believes he made the right decision.

“It might seem obvious that I trust Mihajlovic the Coach,” Okaka told Corriere Mercantile. “I have got on perfectly with him so far.

“He told me he believed in me and the things I can do. I have been able to show what I can do and I will always thank him for that.

“Coming to Sampdoria was the right choice. The fans have welcomed me well, just like my teammates and the directors.

“I want to continue like this. It’s always on the pitch that you do the talking.”
