For a while our Mister X was thought to be a talented young newcomer like Roberto Di Matteo or Gianfranco Zola. Then Lotito hinted at a foreign manager and names like Dunga and Van Gaal began circling around the media. Now it seems for certain that Lazio's next trainer will be a mixture of both. His name, Vladimir Petkovic.

Apparently only a signature separates him from the Lazio bench and earning himself a cool 600k a year, a signature that was thought to be done yesterday. However his arrival was delayed and is widely expected to arrive at Formello this morning.

Petkovic has the recommendation of Lazio's Senad Lulic, who played for him at Young Boys, and regards him as one of the best minds in football.

Meanwhile, striker Libor Kozak has announced that he wishes to stay in Rome and is at the disposal of the new coach. He told LazioStyle Radio: I make myself ready for the new coach of Lazio when he arrives. We all want to show our capacity".
