Coach Sinisa Mihajlovic

The arrival of the blunt and brash Sinisa Mihajlovic in the Sampdoria dressing room came as a rude shock, but it was one the players really needed. His outspoken personality immediately blew off the cobwebs that had developed under previous Coach Delio Rossi’s reign.

Mihajlovic took over in the dugout with the club fearing for their top-flight survival. He led them to mid-table security with relative ease, with the players responding perfectly to their Serb boss’ hard-line demands of resilience and commitment. Leading the Blucerchiati to 12th place in Serie A in 2013-14, Mihajlovic subsequently penned an extension to 2015.
