Bologna president Francesca Menarini says they're delighted with the appointment of Sinisa Mihajlovic as new coach.

Menarini said: "It's been a busy week, from the Cagliari blow to the change of coach. Mihajlovic is a great conqueror, an extraordinary man inside and outside the field.

"(Daniele) Arrigoni? We showed confidence in him to the end, but after Cagliari there was nothing more we could do.

"Who has recommended Mihajlovic? No suggestions, we explored several possibilities. I believe, we have chosen very well."
