The Bosnian has shot to the top of the list for the vacant Stadio Olimpico post and could be announced within days.
â€śThere is a meeting tomorrow between Petkovic and Lazio. If they were to reach an agreement, then we wonâ€™t stand in their way,â€ť said director of sport Marco Degennaro on Radio ManĂ ManĂ .
â€śHe has a contract, but itâ€™s true that when a side like Lazio calls, it is difficult to keep hold of anyone.
â€śIâ€™d love to see Petkovic work for a top club and I wish him all the best. Itâ€™s only right that we donâ€™t get in his way when an opportunity like this arises, as it is the best thing for his career.
â€śPetkovic only arrived here 15 days ago and there are no problems releasing him. None of this has been translated to paper, as there are only handshakes between the President and the Coach.â€ť
