Zlatan Ibrahimovic, on the stage of Sanremo, wanted Sinisa Mihajlović, “A gladiator, a brave man, who was almost as strong on the field as Zlatan.” “Our friendship was born with a header,” he said later, after calling the Bologna coach next to him. Back then, the Milan champion was young. “I understood it would become very strong. We played against each other, Juve-Inter, he threw a head at me “, recalled Mihajlović, who, before performing as a singer among many, recalled the most difficult game, against the disease.
“It was a treacherous disease that came suddenly. I thought nothing like this would ever happen to me. For two or three days, the world collapsed on me. Then, I recovered, threw out the negative energy and entered the positive hospital, thinking I would win», Said the coach, recovered from an aggressive form of leukemia. “When I heard the news from Sinisa, I didn’t have the strength to call him. I let a few days go by. I phoned him, but I didn’t know how to give him strength, energy. It was he who gave it to me. He told me: “Don’t worry, this is a small moment that passes” », Ibrahimović later said, giving voice to a sense of inadequacy that culminated in a promise. «I told him:“ Sinisa, if you need to call me, I will do anything ”. He replied: “I need a strong striker” ». The two friends laughed, aware of how the agreement, Ibrahimović at Bologna, never went through. Then, microphone in hand, they sang with Fiorello and Amadeus, I wander of the Nomads.
