  13/12/2013: Hernanes message to Petkovic
email print  
It's been a bleak few months for Lazio, and for Petkovic in particular. Only one Serie A win in the last ten sees the biancoceleste closer to Serie B than Europe. After another disappointing result in the Europa League, Hernanes decided to use Facebook to give support to Petkovic, who seems to have become the scapegoat:

"I don't know if this is the right time or even the right thing to do, but who cares. I wanted to use Facebook to compliment our coach. At this moment we are in trouble and he has to go after each match and explain what is happening. This happens in football, there are times that things don't go well."

"One thing is for certain and I know, after we won the Coppa Italia it was simple and anyone could go out there and take compliments but there are few who would be able to do what he is doing now. The coach is behaving like a man of sound principles and is preserving the team as he always has. Bravo Mr. Petkovic, you are a great coach and demonstrate great character! I am with you. Hernanes."
