Bologna sack Arrigoni and appoint Mihajlovic

MILAN, Nov 3 (Reuters) - Serie A strugglers Bologna sacked coach Daniele Arrigoni on Monday and named former Yugoslavia defender Sinisa Mihajlovic as his replacement.

Mihajlovic, a former Lazio player, was most recently the assistant manager at Inter Milan before being sacked with coach Roberto Mancini at the end of last season despite Inter winning the title.

Promoted Bologna, second bottom of Serie A with six points from 10 games, decided to part company with Arrigoni after losing 5-1 at Cagliari on Sunday.

"Daniele Arrigoni has been relieved of his duties. Sinisa Mihajlovic has been appointed team coach," the club said in a statement.

The 39-year-old Mihajlovic, who becomes a head coach for the first time, won the European Cup as a player with Red Star Belgrade in 1991 and the Italian championship with Lazio in 2000.

The defender was known for his fiery temperament and in 2000 was accused of making racist remarks to Arsenal's Patrick Vieira, who was reunited with Mihajlovic at Inter. Mihajlovic later apologised for the incident.
