Bologna Coach Sinisa Mihajlovic was given a surprise homecoming party by his wife Arianna following the first round of chemotherapy.
The Serbian was diagnosed with leukaemia six weeks ago and spent all summer in a clinic undergoing treatment.
He was allowed out for one evening to attend Bologna’s opening Serie A game of the season against Hellas Verona.
Last night, Miha made an emotional return to the Stadio Dall’Ara for their last-gasp 1-0 win over SPAL.
As there is now a break for international duty, Mihajlovic took the opportunity to return to his house in Rome.
Wife Arianna and their children greeted him with a surprise party, including balloons and pictures of their lives together all around the room.
She posted the images on Instagram.
