In a poignant display of loyalty and remembrance, Arianna Mihajlović, the widow of the late football icon Siniša Mihajlović, attended the Serie A match between Lazio and Bologna in Rome.

Both clubs hold a special place in the heart of the Mihajlović family, as Siniša left a lasting legacy at each, both as a player and a coach.   

Arianna brought a special jersey to the stadium – a children's Lazio shirt with the name "Violante" on the back, the name of her and Sinisa's granddaughter. Her presence at the match and the jersey were symbolic gestures of her continued connection to her late husband's football journey.   

The match, which ended in a 2-1 victory for Bologna, was more than just a game. It was a moment of reflection and tribute to Siniša Mihajlović's impact on both clubs. Arianna's attendance and her social media post, "Lazio - Bologna. I love you," encapsulated the deep emotional ties that transcend the sport.   

Sinisa Mihajlović's legacy in Italian football, particularly with Lazio and Bologna, remains strong. His contributions to the game as a fierce competitor and a passionate coach continue to be celebrated by fans and loved ones alike.
