  27/12/2013: Reja moving closer to Lazio
email print  

In the public eye not much seems to be going on, but behind the scenes Lotito is facing a hectic time in order to settle the situation with Petkovic as well as appointing a new coach.

English press have picked up on the potential arrival of Di Matteo and the ex-Chelsea manager has been looked for to give comments on the situation but made himself hard to find. One big obstacle that has been brought forward is that the Swiss born is still under contract with the Blues and it would cost Lotito about €500.000 to get him to Lazio.

Reja is still the name closest to take over the Lazio bench and with Valencia officially announcing Juan Antonio Pizzi as new head coach Reja has one less option to consider. It is said that one or two Ukrainian sides have asked for the services of the unemployed 68-year old, but that he would prefer to stay in Italy if the option is given.

Officially Petkovic is still the coach of Lazio and with the team resuming training in three days Lotito would want to have a new name in place by then. Whether the partnership between Lazio and Petkovic will come to an end inside or outside the courtroom will be seen in the coming few days.
