Sinisa Mihajlovic has been removed from his coaching duties Bologna on Tuesday, following the poor balance sheet at the start of the season in the Italian Championship (three points in five games). In an open letter published Wednesday morning at The Gazzetta della SportSinisa Mihajlovic expresses her disappointment and confesses “not understanding this eviction”three and a half years after returning to the club (a first stint between 2008 and 2009).
While Bologna is looking for its first victory in Serie A, the former Serbian international defender (53 years old, 63 caps) “accept” decision “as a professional should do, but I considered the situation absolutely under control and capable of improvement”. “The club did not share my opinion”says Mihajlovic.
” See you again soon “
Three draws and two defeats were enough for the Italian club to end the contract of Mihajlovic, in office since January 2019 and who has “hard to think that all this stems only from the latest results”, excluding the hypothesis that his leukemia, contracted in the summer of 2019, would not have allowed him to continue. “My health conditions are good and constantly improving”he writes, indicating that he does not have “missed a day” training.
The former defender of Sampdoria, Inter Milan or the two Rome clubs had to be hospitalized at the end of last season to reduce the risk of relapse. Finally, in his letter, Mihajlovic warmly thanked the Bolognese supporters and indicated “that we will see each other again soon, on the ground”. “My adventure in Bologna was not only football or sport. Your warmth has warmed me in the most difficult times”.
According to the Italian press, the former coach of Spezia Thiago Motta is the most serious track to take over on the Bologna bench.
