The Serbian coach has determined greeting the nation of rossoblù, remembering the final three and a half years, that are characterised by the illness that they proceed to struggle. The letter is that this: “I have typically greeted followers, gamers, golf equipment, cities, farewells or farewells. It is a part of the job of soccer and the coach to go eventually. Sports are born, they develop; they offer satisfaction, typically disappointment after which inevitably it ends. Nothing lasts endlessly, however this time the style that my final conversion leaves me with is a tragic one.

Why do I simply say good day to the followers who love me and assist me for 3 and a half years filled with soccer and life, tears of pleasure and ache, success, fall and begin. Greetings to our brothers and fellow residents. My journey to Bologna was not simply soccer, it was not only a sport… It was a union of souls, strolling collectively on a darkish street to see the mild once more. I felt respect for the trainer and for the man. Your heat has warmed me in the most troublesome occasions. I tried to return all this love with my full devotion and the connection of the shirt: not saving myself in the discipline or in the hospital mattress.

The years in Italy and the struggling I skilled have softened me, however not utterly modified me. I turned a number of corners, however I stay the Serbian that’s typically troublesome, sincere, merciless: I couldn’t specific my emotions of gratitude. Maybe I do not know what number of candy phrases I can provide, I do not know what number of hugs I could make: however I answered “I am there” with my unhealthy responsibility, not neglecting something of my work, fulfilling my responsibility. accountable sufficient, even in the most spectacular situations, to give the followers and Bologna the satisfaction they deserve. I hope I have succeeded somewhat. In our three and a half years collectively we achieved an ideal tenth place, then twice in the twelfth and at last in the thirteenth. To at all times attain, regardless of every little thing – and what “every little thing” was – the salvation of peace: making an attempt to hit exhausting and offensively, throwing younger gamers and permitting the workforce to get extra money and the exit market, as proven by the final episodes . Could I have completed higher? Maybe. Have I given my all? Yes, no doubt. And this enables me to have a look at everybody with my head held excessive and never really feel responsible about something.

If I win, nonetheless, I additionally thanks followers and all of Bologna. I will always remember your visits to the sanctuary of San Luca for me, the encouragement, “power Sinisa don’t quit” while you met me on the road, in Casteldebole, in the stadium. And my emotion when I acquired the honorary citizenship, to really feel like a Bolognese amongst Bolognese.

I have by no means been a hypocrite, I won’t be a hypocrite this time both: I don’t perceive this launch. I agree, as an knowledgeable ought to, however I thought issues had been over and will change. The firm didn’t have the similar opinion as me. We are on the fifth day, and I discover it troublesome to assume that all of it is determined by the current outcomes or the workforce and it isn’t a choice that has been occurring for a very long time. Sadness. However, I would love to say that my well being is sweet and enhancing. I’m not caring for myself anymore, simply checking an increasing number of now and again. I have adopted all the programs in Casteldebole in the final weeks: my solely everlasting limitation is that I can not expose myself to the sturdy solar for a lot of hours. But I by no means missed a day. Nothing stops me from working and going to the bench. This just isn’t the time to deal with the ball at the finish, in the market, in the administration of some occasions that I didn’t agree with. Now, remembering so many particular and memorable moments, I simply need to say thanks.

Thanks to the passionate followers of Bologna. For individuals, I exclude some acceptable to me. I realized from the president that he allowed me to work right here for 3 and a half years, exhibiting that I trusted him for a very long time. To the former managers of those years, from Claudio Fenucci to Walter Sabatini to Riccardo Bigon, who’ve at all times been by my facet, on and off the street. To the medical groups and communication with all the areas that work in Bologna day by day with love and fervour. To my workers, who’ve at all times supported me. To my gamers who have not come again in these seasons: I hope I have completed properly and developed. They have endured my taunts, typically in anger, and have proven me many occasions, to encourage me, to love me as I have most sincerely requested for every one in all them.

Finally, I thank the hospital of Sant’Orsola, one in all the greatest issues of this excellent metropolis and I point out, to everybody, Dr. Francesca Bonifazi.

I want Bologna and all the followers success in the sport: to my successor I go away a wholesome workforce, a piece ethic and, I consider, the values ​​shared by nature.

We will meet once more, I hope quickly, on the discipline. If I put on any shirt, I won’t be an opponent, however at all times one in all you.”
