Is Mihajlovic a plus or a minus?

I have no doubt Mihajlovic is a minus in the long run but I'm wondering whether he has already become a minus for Torino.

What has happened that you say 'already'? For example the two recent games against Milan they didn't look bad. Iturbe, if he knew how to shoot, alone could have made the result of one different, a penalty made the result of the other different.

Mihajlovic loves to play the iron sergeant but the players are not soldiers who defend their own country. The supporters love his press conferences before the game, but I doubt the players love his comments after the game. He tries to obtain a reaction but the result is not always the one he was looking for and in the long run the unwanted reactions are more probable than the wanted one. The second halves of the two games with Milan highlighted a team which is very different from the one Mihajlovic wants to see, a team which concedes and is reached or even overcome.

You are right, that type of coach has a limited shelf life with any one team. See it in all sports.

Cairo confirmed Mihajlovic for the next season but not all the supporters think it's a good idea. After the win on Sassuolo the Serbian coach talked about the next season and said. "No more than a dozen players will remain".
Torino conceded an enormous amount of goals for a midtable team (66!).

According to Tuttosport the value of the players of Toro has grown by 157 million euros in one season.

How much of that is Belotti? Cairo will make one big sale and then how well will he use it... doubt anything long lasting.

Belotti presense is missed; They sold Zapacosta for how much? 20m+? Surely that couldnt weakened much.

Every team would miss their top striker, but if the goal for Toro is EL, then you must win games against teams like Crotone.

Zapacosta was sold for 25m with addons.

Mihajlovic has been sacked. I'm not saying that he didn't deserve it for what he has done up to now, but it's odd that the Serbian coach has been sacked after a predictable defeat in the derby of Italian Cup as Juventus clearly want to win the Italian Cup and the difference in quality between the two teams is huge. The new coach will be Mazzarri, an excellent choice in my opinion.

Cairo explains: "We couldn't wait any longer. We invested heavily on two players, Niang and Rincon, Mihajlovic had asked for and those two players weren't performing the way we expected them to perform. I'm sorry, I don't like sacking coaches and and I had sacked no coach in the last 7 seasons".
About Mazzari: "I had already looked for him 10 years ago"
