Official: Pioli is Lazio Coach

Stefano Pioli is officially the new Coach of Lazio after Edy Reja resigned.

The ex-Bologna boss will be presented to the media on Friday, as he completed a meeting with President Claudio Lotito this evening.

A statement was released after the club photographer was called into the Villa San Sebastiano offices.

Directors Igli Tare, Armando Calveri and Stefano De Martino were also present at the meeting with President Lotito.

Tare left in the same car as Pioli in order to have dinner and it's reported he signed a two-year contract.

Pioli was sacked as Coach of Bologna this season and the club was eventually relegated.

It was also reported that Massimiliano Allegri was offered the job first, but the ex-Milan manager turned it down.
