It was announced last week that Max Allegri would be departing the club after five successful seasons, winning an impressive 11 trophies and enhancing his reputation as one of the game’s top tacticians. In truth, it was a separation that felt somewhat inevitable, but the news still came as a shock when officially communicated.

Mihajlovic: 'I was born ready'

Sinisa Mihajlovic felt Bologna securing Serie A safety was “practically a miracle” and hinted he is ready for a big club, whether it’s Lazio or Juventus.

The Coach took over from Pippo Inzaghi in January and transformed their fortunes, culminating in this evening’s 3-3 draw away to Lazio.

“Nobody, or at least very few, believed we could stay in Serie A and I was one of them. I saw this team had quality and characteristics. The more time went on, the more I became convinced,” Mihajlovic told Sky Sport Italia.
