Three favourites for Panchina d'Oro award

The Panchina d’Oro awards commence this afternoon, with Max Allegri, Sinisa Mihajlovic and Gian Piero Gasperini the favourites to lift the award.

The Panchina d’Oro, or golden bench in English, has been in existence since 1990, when it was open to coaches across Europe.

Since 1993 however it has remained exclusively in Italy.

The favourites for this year’s Panchina d’Oro are believed to be Allegri, Bologna coach Mihajlovic and Atalanta’s Gasperini.

Palacio: 'Mihajlovic changed Bologna'

Rodrigo Palacio said Sinisa Mihajlovic has “changed our mentality” at Bologna after marking a year of his Stadio Dall’Ara tenure.

The Rossoblu fought back from a penalty to beat Brescia 2-1 this afternoon, even though they dominated the match and Palacio missed two sitters.

“It’s a very important victory and a difficult one, but we played good football and kept the ball to feet,” La Trenza told Sky Sport Italia.

Mihajlovic wizard of substitutions

Miha: 'I'm not a hero'

Bologna coach Sinisa Mihajlovic has opened up about his battle with leukaemia, “I’m not a hero, I wanted to break a window, but my wife and the doctors stopped me.”

Mihajlovic has been battling the disease since last summer, and in an interview on the TV show ‘Verissimo’, the Serb recalls the chemotherapy process.

“I had 13 chemotherapy sessions in five days, but after the third they had already destroyed everything,” said Mihajlovic.

Miha: 'Ibra like a brother'

Bologna boss Sinisa Mihajlovic says Zlatan Ibrahimovic is “like a brother” to him, and that he understands why he rejected the Rossoblu for Milan.

Ibra returned to Italy with Milan earlier this month after seven years away from the country, after his contract with MLS side LA Galaxy expired.

Bologna had been linked with a move for the Swede, in part due to Mihajlovic’s relationship with the former Juventus striker from their time together at Inter.

Ultimately, Ibra signed for the Rossoneri.

Report: Ibanez wants Roma

Roger Ibanez would prefer a move to Roma, according to Sky Sport Italia, as the Giallorossi leapfrog Bologna into pole position for the Atalanta player.

Bologna had reportedly agreed to pay Atalanta €9m with €2m in add-ons and Roma would have to match the offer to bring him to the Olimpico.

But, after meeting with both clubs, the broadcaster claims that the player would prefer to play for Paulo Fonseca in the capital over Sinisa Mihajlovic at the Renato Dall'Ara.

De Leo: 'Bologna lacked end product'

Bologna assistant coach Emilio De Leo says they lacked an end product in their defeat against Torino. “We made wrong choices at the last hurdle.”

The Rossoblu went down to a goal from the Granata’s Alex Berenguer, and De Leo believes they didn’t warrant a defeat.

“We had a lot of chances, we dominated and controlled the game, but if we don’t score then we must only blame ourselves,” said De Leo in his press conference.
