Lazio confirm faith in Petkovic

Lazio President Claudio Lotito has insisted the club have not been considering the position of boss Vladimir Petkovic.

The tactician’s future has been cast into some doubt after a problematic recent run of results in the Italian top flight.

With just one win from their last six, the Biancocelesti are seventh in the standings – 13 points behind the Champions League zone and 16 shy of leaders Roma.

“Nobody has ever put his position into any doubt,” Lotito said when asked about the tactician on Friday.

“Once we have recovered all of our injured players then you’ll all see the potential of our side. We’re just trying to find the right balance at the moment.”

Lazio, who lost 2-0 at home to Genoa last week, will travel to Parma on Sunday.

The capital club did beat Apollon 2-1 in the Europa League on Thursday.
