Bologna sack Mihajlovic, bring in Papadopulo

Bologna have sacked coach Sinisa Mihajlovic after a slump in form which has seen them drop into the Serie A relegation zone.

The move was expected after director general Piergiovanni Ricci confirmed Mihajlovic's position would be discussed in the wake of Saturday's 4-1 home defeat by Siena - their fourth consecutive loss.

Bologna have named former Siena and Lecce boss Giuseppe Papadopulo as his replacement for the remainder of the season.

A statement from the club read: "Bologna FC wish to announce we have relieved Sinisa Mihajlovic of his duties as first-team coach, and would like to send him sincere thanks for the effort and professionalism he has given.

"The technical tasks have now been appointed to Giuseppe Papadopulo."

Bologna returned to the top flight last summer after three years in Serie B but look set for a swift return.

They started well under previous boss Daniele Arrigoni but a downturn in fortunes saw him sacked in November with Mihajlovic brought in.

They have struggled to find any consistency under the Serbian, however, and he leaves with the Rossoblu third bottom, one point and one place from safety with seven games remaining this season.

Papadopulo will be presented to the media on Tuesday afternoon.
