“Mihajlovic has faced the disease with courage and determination since the day he wanted to make his state of health public in a moving press conference,” he said.
“Since then, despite the hospital stays and the heavy effects of the treatments he has been subjected to, he has always remained close to the team, making every effort to be in contact with the players, in person or in connection, thanks also to the professionalism of his staff.
“The club and the whole city rallied around the coach in this difficult personal experience, despite Mihajlovic has always rightly claimed to be evaluated only for his work. Now, unfortunately, the time has come for a change of technical leadership: a painful decision that we had to make for the good of the team and the club.
“But even if Sinisa Mihajlovic will no longer be the coach of Bologna from today, this club and all the people who make it up will always be by his side until his complete and total recovery and in the rest of his career.”
