MILAN – Sinisa Mihajlovic won the "Legend" award at the "Gazzetta Sports Awards", the grand gala of the Rosea which awarded the best sportsmen of the year. The Bologna coach's statements were reported by the Gazzetta dello Sport in an article by Michela Cuppini: “Look, you make me move so. I'm at the end of the tunnel, you see the sun … ".
"The affection I received helped me. I didn't want to be a hero, I face problems like that. I don't like running away. I kept doing my job because it made me feel alive. I couldn't wait to watch my parents' training live on TV from the hospital. These are things that kept me alive. But above all my family, my wife Arianna, my children.
The fans, the world of football, I heard everyone close. I thank everyone because I felt like I was in a big family. I therefore felt compelled to make people understand that one should not be afraid, but want to fight. Then it is not said that everyone has to face it as I do, but you have to give yourself little goals.
Arianna was with me every day. He slept in a chair. Regrets? My father had cancer and I couldn't hug him for the last time – he was moved -. Now when I drink grappa I take one for myself and one for him "(source La Gazzetta dello Sport).
