bacca-niang_1b458aaAC Milan coach Sinisa Mihajlovic insists he doesn’t care about talk over his future after reaching Coppa Italia semi-final.

The Rossoneri saw off Carpi at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza with goals from Carlos Bacca and M’Baye Niang in the first half.

“We knew it would not be easy, but we really wanted to qualify for the semi finals,” Mihajlovic told Rai Sport post match.

“We created a lot of chances in the first half and deserved more goals.

“Things did then get more complicated, however, we deserved to win.”

Matteo Mancosu netted what would be a consolation goal for the Biancorossi, however it put the hosts under pressure.

“They scored in the first ten minutes of the second half, but we regained our composure and could have scored,” Mihajlovic added

“We are not clinical enough in front of goal, in the last three Serie A games we deserved nine points but only got two.

“If we create a lot of chances and don’t score then it is our own fault, we really need to improve in front of goal.”

Mihajlovic is under intense scrutiny regarding his coaching role, with Marcello Lippi lined up to replace him.

“For three months I’ve had this scrutiny and expect it until the end of the season, I don’t care,” Mihajlovic declared.

“I always try my best and don’t worry about these matters, people can write what they want.”

The Rossoneri will now face either Serie B outfit Spezia or Lega Pro side Alessandria in the semi-final for a place in the final. VIP Lounge
