'Bologna won't hold back at Juve'

Bologna assistant Emilio De Leo has warned Juventus that “we won’t hold back” tomorrow, although they will be without Mitchell Dijks.

Bologna have gone five Serie A games without a win but have been boosted by the return of Coach Sinisa Mihajlovic in training, and the Serb could appear in the dugout at Juve this weekend.

“The Coach has brought his usual charge, his combative self,” De Leo said at a Press conference,

“He makes us focus on the details, on what we can improve. With his presence, he transmits courage and confidence.

“We won’t hold back and we’ll aim to play our game, knowing there will be times when we need to tighten up, without taking steps back in terms of maturity.”

The Rossoblu have a problem at left-back, however, as Dijks took a blow to his right foot in training and did not travel.

“Dijks got hurt during the second-from-last training session. He suffered bruising to his right foot, but we plan to have him back next week. It shouldn’t be anything serious.

“We have various ways of replacing Medel. Svanberg’s becoming versatile and Schouten had a good debut. We have different options.”
