The 50-year-old Serbian confirmed a leukaemia diagnosis in a media conference on Saturday.

I know Sinisa Mihajlovic well and I know that he is a man who never gives up," said Saputo in a statement.

Of course, the news of his illness has shocked us. I want to let it be known that my thoughts and those of my family are with Sinisa and his loved ones.

As Walter Sabatini said in the Press conference, Mihajlovic is and will remain Bologna's Coach. But professional issues are of secondary importance here: Sinisa has an important battle to win, and in me, Bologna Fc and the whole city a city that loves him he can be sure to find allies ready to fight alongside him.

No other words are needed at this time. Forza Sinisa!"

The 50-year-old Serbian held a media conference in Bologna on Saturday, having failed to follow his squad to the mountains for their pre-season training camp.

I asked for this Press conference and also for privacy, as I was the one who wanted to tell the squad and all of you this news first.

Unfortunately, that did not happen, not everyone respected it and in order to sell a few more hundred copies, they ruined a long-term friendship (Corriere dello Sport, ndr).

Unfortunately, or even fortunately, we performed some tests that showed anomalies I didn't have four months ago. I'll explain it all clearly, because I don't want people speculating. I'll tell you the truth, how things stand, then once that is done, the doctor will continue to give you updates, with my privacy respected.

The toughest part was trying to hide it from my wife. I had a fever and she did not believe that was it, as she knows that wouldn't stop me going to pre-season training. She tried to believe me... I told her that I had a fever, but we were going for another test. It showed leukaemia.

When I got the news, it was a real blow. I sat there for days crying, your life passes by your eyes. These are not tears of fear. I respect the illness, I will face it, with chest puffed out, looking it in the eyes, the way I always have done.

I cannot wait to go to hospital and start the fight. It is aggressive, but it is beatable. I explained that to my players too, we had a conference call with them and as is natural, I had some tears.

I explained to them we have to attack and go to win. If we sit back and try to defend, we'll get knocked down straight away. I have to use my tactics in this battle and I am sure, without any doubts, that I will win this battle."

The Mirror says Sturridge is being offered the chance to revive his career in Italy after he was dumped by Liverpool at the end of last season.

Sturridge, 29, has been in America this summer while he plans his next move after being shown the door by Jurgen Klopp and could get his career back on track with a move to Serie A, where Bologna have asked about his future plans.

But his wage demands could be a sticking point as he was earning around 120,000-a-week at Anfield.

The Sun says the Irons have demanded 10million for Obiang amid interest from Italy in a summer transfer.

Obiang, 27, is being chased by Serie A sides Bologna and Sassuolo with his place in Manuel Pellegrini's plans under threat.

The Spanish midfielder was a regular in the Hammers' matchday squad last season but is by no means guaranteed a place in the starting line-up.

And the return from injury of fellow midfielders Jack Wilshere and Carlos Sanchez has seen his chances of forcing his way into Pellegrini's squad damaged still further.

The defender has already agreed to terms and Gerrard teased the finalisation of the transfer after Rangers beat Gibraltan outfit St Joseph's in the Europa League.

"It will be a permanent deal for a defender," said Gerrard after the match.

Helander made 60 appearances for Serie A side Bologna over three years, scoring just a single goal.

He featured 20 times in the league last season for Bologna as a centre-back.

Helander has been a constant feature of the Swedish youth teams, before being called up to the Sweden senior squad in 2017. He's since recorded ten caps for his country.

If the deal is confirmed, it'll be the most money Rangers have spent on a transfer for nine years, since they bought Nikica Jelavic for 4.4m from Rapid Vienna.
