It was a long, tough season for everyone due to the COVID crisis, but Bologna had even more life or death situations to deal with, writes Susy Campanale.
Playing for Sinisa
During pre-season training on July 13, 2019, Bologna coach Sinisa Mihajlovic held a press conference. He very calmly informed everyone that he had been diagnosed with leukaemia, but would fight this, just as he had fought every other hardship in his life. “I explained to the players, we have to attack and go to win. If we sit back and try to defend, we’ll get knocked down straight away. I have to use my tactics in this battle and I am sure, without any doubts, that I will win.”
