Sinisa Mihajlovic will not be on the Bologna bench against Brescia next weekend, as he will begin the second round of chemotherapy.
The Coach was diagnosed with an aggressive form of leukaemia over the summer and has already completed the first course of chemo.
He kept up to date with his squad by watching training sessions via videolink, giving team talks and was given special permission from his medics to be on the touchline for their opening two Serie A matches against Verona and SPAL.
However, it’s reported Mihajlovic won’t be there for next week’s Serie A encounter with Brescia, as he is due to begin the second course of chemotherapy.
It means remaining inside the Sant’Orsola Hospital’s cancer unit in a controlled environment.
The Serbian boss was allowed home for a couple of weeks to spend time with his wife and children.
