Sinisa Mihajlovic insists he will not resign as Fiorentina coach despite his team's slow start to the campaign.
Mihajlovic replaced Cesare Prandelli as coach this summer, but the Viola have claimed just one win in Serie A so far and lie 16th in the standings, with five points from six games.
"I know how the world works and the fact that it's easier to replace one person than 11," said Mihajlovic in an interview with Corriere della Sera.
"But my conscience is clear. I work with passion and give my best.
"I feel I have support behind me.
"But if they were to sack me, I would have to accept it.
"One thing is certain, I will not resign."
Mihajlovic is confident his team will turn things around.
"It's a mental problem," he said. "I confess that I expected a better start from my team but I have not lost faith.
"We are in debt with our fans and we will turn things around."
Fiorentina take on Sampdoria in Genoa on Sunday.
