Pier Paolo Bisoli reveals his sensations when he was fired by Bologna. “You have to take it, knowing you’ve given your all.”
The Coach was sacked last month and made way for Stefano Pioli after a poor start to the campaign.
The Serie A rules mean he cannot take charge of another team this season.
“I spend my days now going to see Serie B or Lega Pro games, or playing tennis. I do miss the bench a great deal, especially the daily work and that desire to transmit ideas to the squad,” he told TMW.
“But anyone who does this for a living knows these moments will come along. You just have to take it, knowing you gave your all and could not have done any more.”
Bisoli was one of several tacticians axed already this term, as Cagliari have gone through two Coaches while Palermo, Inter and Cesena also changed.
“We are the weak link in the chain. There is talk of long-term plans and projects, but we are never given the time to achieve them. Results have to be secured straight away and are our only safety anchor. Few clubs really think long-term,” continued Bisoli.
“Sadly, I don’t think my old club Cesena will avoid relegation. The spirit is the same, though, and they will battle to the end.”
