Bosnian Vladimir Petkovic has been appointed coach of Serie A side Lazio, the Italian club confirmed on Saturday.
The Rome club have been looking for a coach since Edoardo Reja finally left at the end of the season after handing in his resignation three times during his turbulent reign.
"Lazio announce that Vladimir Petkovic is the new coach," the club said in a brief statement.
Petkovic, 48, has spent most of his career in Switzerland most recently with Sion which he saved from relegation. He also coached Turkish club Samsuspor for a short time.
According to the Italian press, Petkovic has signed a two-year deal with Lazio who finished fourth in the Serie A last season.
