Del Piero and Mihajlovic on lost art of free kicks

Alessandro Del Piero and Sinisa Mihajlovic are two of the greatest free kick specialists in Serie A history, so they discussed why so few direct set plays are scored nowadays.

Mihajlovic holds the absolute record in Serie A with 28 conversions, alongside Andrea Pirlo, while Del Piero is in third place with 22.

In his new role as Sky Sport Italia pundit, Del Piero asked Bologna coach Mihajlovic why more weren’t scored now when they have in theory the advantage of the ‘spray’, meaning the wall stays at the regulation distance.

Sinisa Mihajlovic rues Bologna errors after a 3-1 defeat to Napoli, because ‘we played and they scored the goals.’

There was no shortage of scoring opportunities at both ends, but Lorenzo Insigne’s brace and a Victor Osimhen counter-attack made the difference.

Mihajlovic: 'Zlatan friendship started with headbutt'

Sinisa Mihajlovic reveals he became friends with Zlatan Ibrahimovic after ‘a headbutt’ and the Swede struggled to find the words when the Bologna coach was diagnosed with leukaemia.

Ibrahimovic is acting as a guest host at the Sanremo Music Festival all week and had a joint interview with Mihajlovic on the stage this evening.

“Our friendship began with a headbutt,” smiled Mihajlovic, referring to the clash during a Juventus-Inter fixture that saw the striker sent off.

Mihajlovic: 'It was a 0-0 game'

Bologna coach Sinisa Mihajlovic said Cagliari ‘didn’t win, we lost’ after the 1-0 defeat and claimed his team need ‘more hunger’.

Daniele Rugani made sure all the spoils stayed in Bologna on Wednesday and Mihajlovic felt a 0-0 draw would have been fair.

“It was a draw, they scored in the only way they could score, on crosses,” Mihajlovic said at a press conference.

“We weren’t hard enough; it was a 0-0 game. They didn’t win, we lost. There was not enough hunger and determination.

Miha: 'Lazio might have lost some certainty'

Bologna coach Sinisa Mihajlovic says Lazio might have ‘lost some certainty’ after the 4-1 defeat to Bayern Munich and aims to ‘impose our mentality’.

The Rossoblu are unbeaten in three game but come from back-to-back 1-1 draws with Benevento and Sassuolo.

Mihajlovic expects a tough game against his former club, but pointed at a good first leg last year.

“Everyone will play their own game, we won’t change our mentality and I don’t think they will either,” Mihajlovic said at a press conference.

Mihajlovic 'cannot understand' Hickey red card

Sinisa Mihajlovic ‘cannot understand’ the decision to send Aaron Hickey off after 17 minutes and Bologna have ‘regrets’ after the Sassuolo draw.

It wasn’t a happy birthday for the Serbian tactician, because his team was down to 10 men for over 70 minutes.

“What I feel most is anger. When it was 11 against 11, we were dominating. The red card changed everything, but we defended well and barely ran any risks,” the coach told DAZN.
