Petkovic: 'Lazio won't rest on laurels'

Lazio Coach Vladimir Petkovic assures fans they “will not rest on our laurels” after winning the Coppa Italia.

It was the first piece of silverware for the club since 2009, when they won the Coppa Italia and the Italian Super Cup.

“This trophy only repaid the fans who stayed close to us and provided their support,” said Petkovic in a Press conference.

“I thank them all, as what we achieved was down to everyone. We will not rest on our laurels, as we’ll try to prove what we can do more and more.

“So many fans have been with us during pre-season training and I hope they will stand by us throughout the season too.

“The players were able to work at their best and I hope we can continue like this.”

Lazio open the season with the Italian Super Cup against Juventus on August 18 in Rome.
