Bologna will consider the position of Alberto Malesani if his side put in another woeful performance against Milan on Sunday.
The Felsinei have lost four games in a row in Serie A, although they have already ensured their top-flight survival in advance.
Even so, the board is unhappy with the attitude Bologna are showing on the pitch and have lost patience with Malesani.
If Bologna were to lose at San Siro, La Gazzetta dello Sport understands Malesani would be sacked and Paolo Magnani would be promoted from the Primavera.
Malesani has done a remarkable job this season to keep Bologna safe amid points deductions and great uncertainty off the pitch.
He has been linked with the Genoa job ahead of next season.
