Mihajlovic training to regain fitness

Bologna welcomed Rodrigo Palacio back to training today, but even better news is that coach Sinisa Mihajlovic is getting into shape after his leukaemia battle.

Palacio was one of the last to join the full squad at the Casteldebole training ground after returning from South America, while Danilo and Baldursson will arrive on Monday.

The best news from Bologna is the fact that coach Mihajlovic is doing almost as much training as his own players.

Di Vaio not impressed by Zlatan

Bologna chief scout Marco Di Vaio has not been particularly impressed by Milan forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic since his return to Serie A.

The Rossoblu were linked with a move for the 38-year-old, who is a friend of coach Sinisa Mihajlovic, but Zlatan ended up with a return to San Siro in January.

As the former Sweden international has yet to decide where he will play next season, Bologna have again emerged as a possible destination for the veteran superstar.

Bologna doubt Ibrahimovic comments

Bologna director Walter Sabatini assures they won’t sell Roma target Takehiro Tomiyasu and he knows nothing of Sinisa Mihajlovic’s talks with Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The chain-smoking veteran is currently a technical co-ordinator between Joey Saputo’s two clubs, Bologna and the Montreal Impact.

There are reports that Roma are pursuing Japan international full-back Tomiyasu for the summer.

Mihajlovic: 'Ibrahimovic to Bologna or Sweden'

Bologna coach Sinisa Mihajlovic told Serbian television that Zlatan Ibrahimovic ‘certainly won’t remain at Milan’ next season. ‘He’ll either join us or return to Sweden.’

Ibra’s contract with the Rossoneri only runs to the end of this campaign after he signed on as a free agent in January, but the constant changes behind the scenes and lack of certainty appear to make remaining improbable.

Zlatan had considered joining Mihajlovic at Bologna in January, but it seems that option is still out there.

Only in Serie A: Mihajlovic's hat-trick

Just two Serie A players have ever scored a hat-trick of free kicks and they were both for Lazio, as Sinisa Mihajlovic followed in Beppe Signori’s footsteps.

Words: Martin Mork

“When I was little, I didn’t like to play football, only kicking the ball. Every day I would travel two kilometres by foot to arrive at a pitch with a big goal, but with no net,” Sinisa Mihajlovic told Il Giornale. “I’d kick it, have to run back to get the ball and start all over again. After that, I practiced on the garage door and put so many dents in it.”

Sporting: 'No Samp rights for Fernandes'

Sporting CP released a statement insisting Sampdoria do not have the right to €4.6m from the Bruno Fernandes transfer to Manchester United, as it will go to FIFA.

Samp sold the midfielder to Sporting in the summer of 2017 and he was then transferred to Manchester United in January 2020 for €46.5m plus bonuses.

While the Blucerchiati claim they are owed a €4.6m cut of that fee, the Portuguese side released their own statement today.

Mihajlovic takes Sporting CP to UEFA

Sinisa Mihajlovic has written to UEFA insisting that Sporting CP have not paid the €3m compensation for unfair dismissal, so should be frozen out of Europe.

The current Bologna coach was hired by one Sporting President in early June 2018, then fired less nine days later after a boardroom coup.

He won the case in the employment tribunal in November 2019 and the Portuguese club was ordered to pay Mihajlovic €3m in compensation.

Suso: 'I almost joined Inter'

Suso is happy at Sevilla, but reveals he had been very close to leaving Milan for rivals Inter and does not hold back on the coaches he worked with at San Siro.

The winger moved to Sevilla in a January loan deal with €20m option to buy, which becomes an obligation if they hit certain targets.

“You never know in football, but I am very happy to be here and think great players ought to be in the Champions League,” he told Sky Sport Italia.

Sporting pay Mihajlovic compensation

Sporting CP have paid Sinisa Mihajlovic €3m in compensation after he won the unfair dismissal case against the club, claim A Bola.

The coach is currently at Bologna, but he was hired by Sporting on June 18, 2018.

It was a strange scenario, as he was appointed by President Bruno de Carvalho, who was then ousted in a board room coup just days later.

The new patron was Sousa Cintra and immediately fired Mihajlovic on June 27, wanting to take the club in a totally new direction.
