Pippo Inzaghi thanked Bologna fans after he was axed to make way for Sinisa Mihajlovic suggesting he is now an extra supporter.
The Coach was dismissed after managing just two wins, eight draws and 11 Serie A defeats this season.
“A very important professional experience for my career has concluded,” wrote Inzaghi on Instagram and cited on Football Italia.
“It really saddens me to leave Bologna, where over the last few months my staff and I felt great affection and respect.
“Now within me I feel the regret and disappointment at not being able to avoid this situation, but I really wish to thank the Bologna fans for their support throughout a difficult and hard-fought season.
“I wish you with all my heart the best for the future. From now on, Bologna have an extra supporter.”
However, the new manager is confident the team can avoid relegation despite their current predicament.
“I am convinced Bologna can avoid relegation,” said the Coach in his Press conference.
“It’s a difficult task, but I am confident and believe the players are too. If they aren’t, then I’ll find a way to convince them. If I didn’t believe, I wouldn’t have even come here. I spoke to the squad, we’ll have to rush through some stages, so I asked them for concentration.”
