Alberto Malesani hopes the thumping at the hands of Milan “will not discourage potential buyers” for beleaguered Bologna.
The Rossoblu had only conceded three goals at the Dall'Ara all season, but lost 3-0 this afternoon to end an unbeaten home record.
“The first goal was thanks to an incredible Zlatan Ibrahimovic assist,” said the Coach.
“Ibra also sparked the second, while he scored the third. It has to be said, the Swede made the difference on the field today.
“A three-goal gap is too much, but we must also admit that Milan are the strongest side we have faced up until now.”
Bologna were docked a point due to financial irregularities and could have yet more taken off, as the club seeks to avoid bankruptcy.
“So far we have earned 20 points, which isn't exactly small fry,” continued Malesani.
“I hope this defeat will not discourage potential buyers for the club. The city is embracing this squad during difficult circumstances and I hope from tomorrow we can see the light at the end of the tunnel.”
