Lazio president Claudio Lotito is excited about his team's prospects this season.
Vladimir Petkovic's Lazio stunned AC Milan 3-2 on Saturday.
"Petkovic is a Coach we followed for a long time," he told Gr Parlamento. "We asked [former boss] Edy Reja to extend his contract at the end of last season, but he declined. I met him, and instantly liked his moral qualities, character and determination.
"If the group remains cohesive and strong-willed, we will continue to give satisfaction to the fans. We should embrace what we're seeing at the moment, because we have a team that can compete with anyone."
