To mark his 50th birthday, Sinisa Mihajlovic held a special interview with Gazzetta dello Sport in which he reflected on his career as a player.
The Serbian – who is now manager of Bologna – enjoyed a 20 year playing career at senior level that started with hometown club Vukovar in 1986 and ended in 2006 at Inter.
“My playing career was unique and I sometimes wonder how much I would have been worth if I played football today instead,” he told the Milan based newspaper.
“Football has given me a lot and I am so happy for that. Football is much more than a game and is not comparable to anything else.”
He progressed to recall some some of the famous derbies he was part of, namely the Eternal derby between Red Star and Partizan Belgrade and the Milan derby.
“The atmosphere at the Marakana is something else and can not be explained.
“The Milan derby is meanwhile one of the most noble in football.”
He concluded the interview with some words on former Inter president Massimo Moratti: “Moratti is a gentleman and people like him do not exist anymore.”
