OFFICIAL: Bologna hire Mihajlovic

Monday 3 November, 2008

Bologna have formally announced that they have relieved Daniele Arrigoni of his duties and hired Sinisa Mihajlovic as his replacement.

Arrigoni's position became untenable after Bologna lost 5-1 to lowly Cagliari on Sunday, a result President Francesca Menarini called 'undignified'.

The Felsinei are second from bottom after the opening 10 games of the season and have recorded just two wins in their first year back in the top flight.

Mihajlovic will be presented to the public tomorrow morning at a press conference scheduled for 11am.

The Serb will start his first game on Bologna's bench against fellow strugglers Roma on Sunday and is expected to name a Rossoblu legend as his assistant.

Former Italy goalkeeper Gianluca Pagliuca is among the front-runners for that position, as is Renato Villa.

Bologna is Mihajlovic's first job as a Coach. He was assistant to Roberto Mancini at Inter between 2006 and 2008.

Bologna were promoted from Serie B this summer, ending a three-year stint in Italy's Second Division.


great to see him back in the game, and it is a personal dream of mine to have sinisa or diego simeone one day coach lazio!

It would be great to have him back at Lazio once againt but let him get some coaching experience. Either him or Diego, or maybe even Crespo one day, who was my idol when he played at Lazio.

crespo was my idol as qwell, just look at my nickname. tho i hate him now, hes trading little backstabbing bitch.

Mihaj has a strong personality and im sure he will work well at the highest levels.

I have no doubts he will one dy be at lazio, and dont get too surprised if its sooner rther tyhan later.
