The technician, at the delivery of the Menarini Fair Play Award, smiles bitterly: “Predictable sale, but …”. Then he explains his pride in the role of coach in the National Nurses’ team
“Am I happy with my Bologna? Until yesterday I was … Today a little less”. Sinisa Mihajlovic’s frank synthesis accompanied with a bitter smile arrives at the Fair Play-Menarini award in Castiglion Fiorentino and the subject behind the scenes is Takehiro Tomiyasu, whose sale (for 23, indispensable, million euros) took place in the last market day. The Bologna coach had dreamed of what he had called “the ideal football world” (no talent sold with two grafts in the center of the defense and in attack), but on August 31 everything… crumbled.
Obviously the Bologna coach is referring to the value and power that the Japanese talent acquired three years ago in Belgium for 7 million could unleash – in four defensive roles. “His sale was foreseeable but one day before the end of the transfer market, we are a bit sorry …” Mihajlovic then added. In the evening, Sinisa talked about his own punishments from when he was a footballer (“If they went at 130 kilometers per hour? No no, they were rigged …”), on the Italian championship (“It won’t be the most beautiful, but the most difficult yes”) , on the role of technical commissioner of the National Nurses. “I have to thank if the doctors and nurses are still here, who have also put up with me: when they presented it to me I immediately accepted and I’m proud of it, because if in my small way I can do something for someone who has never spared himself above all these days, well, I’m here. ”
Then, a joke about the fair play award. “When you called me I said ‘Either you have the wrong prize or person, because I, in short, sometimes to win … often methods are used, that’s it … to be honest, even if I have always been correct”.
