  22/10/2013: Allegri to replace Petkovic?

An article in today's Corriere dello Sport claims that AC Milan manager, Massimiliano Allegri may be the next S.S. Lazio manager if Claudio Lotito decides to wait until the end of the season to replace Vladimir Petkovic.

The newspaper believes that Petkovic's contract will not be renewed at the end of the season as both President Lotito and the Bosnian coach are believed to be disappointed with the situation at Lazio. Petkovic and the club have made it clear that they intend to continue their relationship for the timebeing, but a whole host of names have been linked to the hotseat in the short-term including Serbia manager, Sinisa Mihajlovic, Albania manager, Gianni De Biasi and Chelsea's Champions League winning manager and ex-Lazio midfielder, Roberto Di Matteo.

However, more names would be available should Lazio wait until the end of the season before making a decision as Serie A rules currently forbid managers from coaching two Serie A clubs in the same season. That would leave the door open to Allegri who is set to leave AC Milan at the end of the season, although the Italy job may also be an option for the ex-Cagliari boss.
