Vladimir Petkovic has been confirmed as successor to Ottmar Hitzfeld as the manager of the Swiss national team. Hitzfeld will step down after the World Cup and the Swiss FA have confirmed today that Petkovic will begin in July 2014.

Corriere dello Sport understand that Petkovic and Lotito will meet tonight to terminate his contract immediately. This comes after weeks of speculation that Petkovic would be sacked this winter break.

The Rome newspaper also believe that former manager Edoardo Reja is a step away from being named as Lazio manager in Petkovic's place.
