Swansea's Rodgers joins Lazio race

Swansea manager Brendan Rodgers has joined Gianfranco Zola, Carlos Dunga and Rafa Benitez in the race for the Lazio job.

The Olimpico club need a new tactician after Edy Reja called it quits, but President Claudio Lotito has not yet found a replacement.

Names such as Brazilian Dunga and ex-West Ham United boss Zola have been bandied about along with Sassuolo Coach Fulvio Pea.

The latest surprise entry into the race is Swansea manager Rodgers, who is also in the running for the Liverpool job.

Rodgers has taken the Swans to promotion and an 11th place finish in the Premier League, while he was called by Jose Mourinho in 2004 to take charge of Chelsea’s youth team.

Another alternative, according to the Corriere dello Sport, is ex-Liverpool and Inter boss


The Spaniard has been out of work since his six-month stint at San Siro in 2010, although he is also considering proposals from the Premier League.
