“I’m happy!” Vladimir Petkovic is all but officially the new Lazio Coach after calling his staff to the Formello training ground.
The Sion tactician was already at Formello on Thursday  and remained there for a second consecutive day.
He was being driven out of the camp for a meal by director of sport Igli Tare when he rolled down the window and said: “I’m happy!” to waiting journalists and fans.
The club has still not formally announced Petkovic as the new Coach after Edy Reja opted to walk away, but he is expected to hold a presentation press conference on Monday.
It is also reported that Petkovic has started bringing his staff to the Formello ground, as physio Paolo Rongoni was spotted there this evening.
