Lazio midfielder Hernanes admits he's enjoyed playing for coach Vladimir Petkovic.

Petkovic has made a big impact in his first season in Italy.

Hernanes said: "When Petkovic arrived at Lazio we talked and he asked me which position I'd prefer to play in. I'd never had a discussion like that with a Coach before, so I was happy. After playing in various different positions, I decided to go back to my roots."
