‘Cerci no loss to Bologna’

Claudio Fenucci insists Bologna did not miss out on Alessio Cerci as the forward was only pursued in the event Anthony Mounier departed.

Bologna had reportedly agreed a season-long loan for Cerci on transfer-deadline day, only for him to fail his medical, but Fenucci made it clear losing the Atletico Madrid outcast “wasn’t a blow”, his side having staved off late interest from France for Mounier.

“I think the sporting director did a good job,” the CEO told Tuttomercatoweb.

“Some quality players arrived and they will be very important to the Coach.”

On Cerci, Fenucci added: “It wasn’t a blow in the final hour. We received an offer from France for Mounier and worked to that effect.

“Cerci’s return [from injury] was then longer than we’d anticipated. Mounier eventually spoke with Donadoni and stayed put.”
