Mihajlovic training to regain fitness

Bologna welcomed Rodrigo Palacio back to training today, but even better news is that coach Sinisa Mihajlovic is getting into shape after his leukaemia battle.

Palacio was one of the last to join the full squad at the Casteldebole training ground after returning from South America, while Danilo and Baldursson will arrive on Monday.

The best news from Bologna is the fact that coach Mihajlovic is doing almost as much training as his own players.

Every morning since May 6, the 51-year-old has spent over an hour running around the pitch and doing exercises to regain his strength, including abdominal crunches.

He was diagnosed with leukaemia in June last year, going through chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant.
