Dunga new Lazio favourite

There are reports Carlos Dunga has become the new hot favourite to replace Edy Reja on the Lazio bench.

Numerous tacticians have been associated with the job since Reja declared he would not stay on at the Olimpico.

Among the candidates include Gianfranco Zola, Roberto Di Matteo, Vincenzo Montella, Walter Mazzarri, Louis van Gaal, Didier Deschamps and Fatih Terim.

However, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport this morning, former Brazil manager Dunga is the favourite.

Dunga had also been linked with the Fiorentina post, as he is a former Viola player, but it’s claimed talks have intensified in recent days between Lazio and the Brazilian.

Another new option for the Biancocelesti is current Sassuolo boss Fulvio Pea, who has taken his team to the promotion play-offs in Serie B.
