Out


Ladislav Krejci (sp)(att)(Sparta Praha)

When he bought Bologna, back in 2014, President Joey Saputo hoped to bring the club among the elite of the Italian football. The past 5 seasons since their return to the top flight, though, have seen his dreams broken. Last campaign, in particular, was rather disappointing as until early February they seemed capable of fighting for the European spots but then they won only 3 out of the final 15, thus seeing the end of their ambitions. Coach Mihajlovic, whose past season was troubled by leukemia but anyway managed to give his side an aggressive and pleasant play, was given a vote of confidence and will once again be asked to lead Bologna to better shores. In order to do so, the management are trying to provide him with a younger squad compared to the one he had at his disposal in the previous season. At the moment, they have not finalized many deals, though. In terms of departures, they only saw Krejci, a winger turned to left-back, returning to his home country and he will not be missed, having spent most of 2020 on the sidelines. So far, a bunch of players that had been loaned out are back and it has to be seen how many of them are really there for staying. Among them, the most interesting return is represented by wonderkid Vignato, a 20-year-old winger/attacking midfielder, who is very well thought of. Right-back Calabresi, after his experience at Amiens SC, could also be considered for a stay as back-up especially if promising Tomiyasu, also a right-back, will make his shift to centre-back. Right-back De Silvestri is expected to sign anytime soon, while Bologna are also on the hunt for one more centre-back and a forward, also considering that Danilo and Palacio are not getting any younger. The defence is the department that needs being adjusted the most, considering that they picked up just 2 clean sheets all last season.

Target


Bologna are aiming at a quantum leap but a lot will depend on the remainder of their transfer campaign. And young players like Orsolini, Skov Olsen and Dominguez will have to find that consistency they totally lacked last season.

Season Review
2019/2020

№12: Bologna

Another inconsistent season on the pitch for Bologna was overshadowed by events off it. Sinisa Mihajlovic's shock revelation of a leukaemia diagnosis before the start of the campaign made football seem insignificant. Typical of the type of man Mihajlovic is, he acted as if he'd merely stubbed his toe and got on with it. A fighter in every sense of the word, not many would have bet against him beating cancer. However, the fact that he was still determined to carry out his work, even from his hospital bed, was staggering. Bologna made a great start to the season with 7 points from three games to sit joint-top with Juventus at the top of the table but their form dipped badly going into the Autumn, winning just 1 of their next 10 league games. The inconsistency continued as the Rossoblu would follow a great run with another just as poor streak, something which would ultimately cost them a potential bid for European qualification. As the team got closer to the 40 point mark and secured safety, there was an easing off period which was amplified by the Coronavirus break. Bologna lacked the same intensity after lockdown and won just 1 of their last 8 league games. Despite that, there were some memorable results throughout the season, including away wins at Inter, Napoli and Roma. The biggest positive for Bologna was again their exciting frontline. The likes of Roberto Soriano, Nicola Sansone and Riccardo Orsolini were a menace to any defence. Orsolini was again particularly impressive with 8 goals and 8 assists from the right flank. The Rossoblu added even more thrust to their attack with the January recruit of Musa Barrow who struck 9 goals in just 16 appearances. The defence remains a problem for Mihajlovic with his side keeping just two clean sheets and conceding more goals than any team outside the bottom 5. The unflappable Serb has almost inevitably seen off leukaemia and will likely be as determined as improve his team back on the touchline next season.
