Report: Petkovic quits Lazio?

There are shock reports that Vladimir Petkovic might’ve handed in his resignation at Lazio.

The rumour emerged on RAI Sport this evening after a 2-1 defeat to Atalanta, meaning they have picked up one point from their four Serie A away games this season.

Tension has been growing at the Stadio Olimpico, as there were heavy losses to Juventus – twice – and Roma.

The reports claim Petkovic handed in his resignation to director Igli Tare and President Claudio Lotito.

It would be a huge turnaround considering he won the Coppa Italia in May, beating rivals Roma in the Final.

Other sources suggest Petkovic has two games to turn the situation around, in the Europa League against Apollon Limassol on Thursday and Serie A with Cagliari next weekend.

RAI maintain Sinisa Mihajlovic is the favourite to take over, but he is still tied down as Coach of Serbia.

Another return is on the cards, as former Lazio boss Edy Reja is currently unemployed. 

There has already been one managerial change in Serie A today, as Catania sacked Rolando Maran to hire Luigi De Canio.
