Sinisa Mihajlovic discussed dealing with his illness, giving others hope and why continuing to work for Bologna “kept me going” in hospital. "Now I need my mother's cooking to fatten me up."
The Bologna coach, who was diagnosed with leukaemia in July and underwent a bone marrow transplant after chemotherapy, was at the Gazzetta Sports Awards this evening.
“Thank you for this prestigious award. I am honoured and pleased. There are a few risks being here, but it’s worth it,” he said from the stage.
