According to Sinisa Mihajlovic, Milan can still win the sxudetto despite being 12 points behind Napoli.
Milan recorded an emphatic 2-0 win over Fiorentina as they climbed to sixth on the table, having lost just two of their last 13 matches.
They still trail third placed inter by eight points as their shot at UCL looks slim.
“The championship is still open,” said Mihajlovic. “If we play like we did against Fiorentina we stand a good chance.
“I would like to see more continuity in my team. We have the right characteristics and I saw them after Fiorentina. Against Fiorentina it took generosity, cynicism, attitude, desire to win.
“These are all things that depend on us. We can win if we show them. We have to put together so many positive things to give consistency to our results.
“The team is growing. In respect of the past four years, after 20 games we have the most points of any Milan, but the fact we could have had more points makes me angry.”
Mihajlovic’s future has been the subject of significant speculation throughout this season, but the 46-year-old has not allowed that to bother him.
He added: “My future? I never doubted my stay here – I have a contract and a clear conscience.
“I work hard and always keep going. I can only worry about my team and the next match, then what will happen will happen.”
