Donadoni: Bologna’s mentality is at fault

Bologna manager Roberto Donadoni insists his team’s lack of belief is the cause of their poor form at home, not tactics.

The Rossoblu were beaten 2-0 by Lazio at the Stadio Dall’Ara on Sunday, after a brace from Ciro Immobile sealed their fate.

The defeat was Bologna's fourth consecutive at home, but Donadoni is convinced they simply need more confidence.

“I think Bologna’s problem has never been tactical, it’s simply a lack of belief and the right attitude to trouble a side like Lazio,” Donadoni told Sky Sport Italia.

“We must be more convinced of our own abilities, instead at times we are hesitant and if we don’t press quality players, then they can do what they want.

“I am not angry with them because some of my players are young and do feel intimidated by the situation, so we must emerge from it with calm and confidence.”
