Lazio will unveil new coach Vladimir Petkovic on Wednesday afternoon, the Serie A club have confirmed.

The Bosnian signed a two-year deal with the Biancoceleste outfit at the weekend after terminating his contract with Swiss side FC Sion.

A statement from Lazio read: "On June 6, at 1500 local time, the new Lazio coach Vladimir Petkovic will hold his first press conference in Lazio's training ground in Formello."

Petkovic, 48, replaces Edy Reja, who left Lazio last month shortly after guiding the team to a fourth-placed finish in Serie A.


Lazio will compete in the Europa League next season.
