There are reports Bologna could dismiss Sinisa Mihajlovic after the 6-1 defeat to Inter and call in Daniele De Rossi.
The Rossoblu had already crashed out of the Coppa Italia in the first round to Serie B side Ternana, but had then amassed seven points from three Serie A rounds.
That good run came crashing to a halt at San Siro this evening, with a humiliating 6-1 scoreline going to Inter.
Now Tuttomercatoweb suggest that Bologna are considering a change of management, with ex-Roma midfielder De Rossi as their first choice to replace Mihajlovic.
It would be De Rossi’s first job as head coach, as he left the Italy staff after UEFA EURO 2020, where he had been an assistant to Roberto Mancini.
It would be an unfortunate ending to this story for Mihajlovic, who has been in charge of Bologna since January 2019.
The club stood by him during the months of chemotherapy and a bone marrow transfusion, as he was diagnosed with acute leukaemia in the summer of 2019.
He ran training sessions and gave team talks remotely from his hospital room, and has now made a full recovery.
