– Zlatan Ibrahimovic: “I learned from Mihajlovic. When you’re around someone like Mihajlovic, you will learn to take free kicks in practice.” “Left foot that he has, you know, you can’t train to be good like him, that’s something you have to born with it.”

– As the previous holder of Serie A’s free-kick scoring record, who is better: you or Beckham? Or is there someone else?

Gianfranco Zola: “Oh God! This one is difficult. I think I was better from close-range free-kicks and he was better from long-range free-kicks. But there was one that was probably better than both of us: Sinisa Mihajlovic. He would just rack up goals from everywhere: short or long distances, he was equally lethal.”

– Juan Sebastian Veron: “Mihajlovic is the best free-kick taker I’ve ever seen. I played with Maradona, Beckham, but Sinisa is best at free-kicks.”

– Zinedine Zidane: “Personally my favourite free kick taker is Michele Platini… but Mihajlovic from Lazio, you know, you need to know everytime when he takes a free kick, that’s goal. He scored 3 free kicks from the same game. That’s really something isn’t it? Three different one, not three the same one, one from there, one from there and other from there, for me his left foot is fantastic.”

– Patrick Viera: “Left foot that he has, that’s the gift by the God, probably, he is the best in the world,”

– Jurnalist: “If only in football players could be substituted like in basketball, then Miha could play till he’s 50, just to come in for the free kicks and corners.”

– David Platt: “Only Mihajlovic is better than Kolarov on taking free kicks.”

– Ivica Kralj: “If Mihajlovic aims well and gets the ball over the wall, it is tough to stop it,” “No one wants to stand in the wall during practices when Mihajlovic shoots,”
“His ball has amazing power and bend. He’s undoubtedly the best free-kick expert in the world.”

– Duch managers watching Mihajlovic shooting free kicks on Lazio training: “Mihajlovic is not normal.” From 20 free kicks Miha scored 18, and only 2 times hitting the wall. ”
