Edy Reja has confirmed he's taking the Lazio job.

Reja says he'll take over at Lazio after Vladimir Petkovic signed for Switzerland, with an announcement expected today.

"I don't know if I will go to Lazio or not, but if Inter sign Ezequiel Lavezzi after January 6, I'd be happier," joked Reja in the Corriere dello Sport, referring to the Biancocelesti's upcoming game against Inter Milan.

"Facing a champion like him on my debut would not be the best. If he weren't there, I'd have one less thing to worry about."
