Petkovic to be sacked?

Reports in Italy are suggesting Lazio could today decide to dismiss current boss Vladimir Petkovic.

The tactician, 50, only joined the club in the summer of 2012, but his future is in doubt after a problematic start to the season.

Lazio lost 4-1 to Verona at the weekend, a result which leaves them in joint eighth after collecting just 20 points from their 17 games so far.

The capital club have won just one of their last eight League games and two of their previous twelve in the Italian top flight.

It is being suggested that Lazio could contact Edy Reja, a man who knows the club well given that he spent two years in charge from 2010.

Former Chievo boss Domenico Di Carlo is also a contender.

Petkovic, meanwhile, has been linked with the Swiss national job once Ottmar Hitzfeld leaves the post after Brazil 2014.
