Sinisa Mihajlovic has confirmed he is out as Milan manager, amid reports the club intend to sack him Tuesday.

The 47-year-old Serbian tweeted a message to Milan fans Monday night, thanking them for their love. He called his short stint as the Rossoneri head man "an honor."

Mihajlovic experienced highs and lows as Milan's manager. Under Mihajlovic, Milan has advanced to the Coppa Italia Final, which will be played against Juventus May 21. The job was not difficult, however. Entering the tournament in the third round, Milan progressed past Perugia, Crotone, Sampdoria, Carpi and Alexandria to reach the final.

League form is the primary concern, as Milan have sat in sixth since the 20th round and are now seven points adrift of a European position with six matches to play. His shining moment was a 3-0 win over Inter in the second derby of the season.

Mihajlovic is expected to be replaced by Primavera boss Cristian Brocchi. The former Milan and Lazio star will manage his first match Sunday at Sampdoria. Sunday's match would have been Mihajlovic's return to the Luigi Ferraris, after he left the Genoa-based club for Milan last summer.
