Petkovic: Siena sacking unfortunate

Lazio boss Vladimir Petkovic has criticised tomorrow's Coppa Italia opponents Siena for sacking Coach Serse Cosmi.

The Robur replaced the 54-year-old with Giuseppe Iachini yesterday after the club's 4-1 loss to Fiorentina at the weekend saw them languish at the bottom of Serie A.

But the Bosnian boss has claimed that it is disappointing to see anyone lose their job and conceded that he does not know what sort of Siena side his team will face at Stadio Olimpico on Wednesday.

“Unfortunately we will play them with a new Coach,” he told a Press conference. “It is not a good thing for football to see these things happening at a club.

“We do not know what sort of opponent we will face but we are used to focusing on ourselves, so it won't be too much of a problem.”
