Following the loss to Reggiana for the Italian League, Fortitudo Bologna head coach Jasmin Repesa announced his resignation. The Croatian coach appeared before the media in the post-game presser, stating that he felt tachycardia in the locker room after being ejected late in the game and that he won’t continue at Fortitudo.

"I apologize to the organization and the players for my ejection. I couldn't stay with the team in the last five minutes. Mazzoni knows that I love him very much because I regard him as one of the best referees in Europe.

'I'm suffering like an animal to fix this club but after this game, I felt bad in the locker room due to a tachycardia attack. I have to stop. Fortitudo is my first love and my life but I can't go on anymore. You know that when I make a decision, I don't change my mind," the 60-year-old tactician said.

Tachycardia is an abnormal electrical impulse starting in the upper or lower chambers of the heart causes the heart to beat faster.

Repesa took over Fortitudo Bologna's reins last May. As it seems, his term won't last longer than four months.
