Soccer: Petkovic to coach Switzerland from July 2014 (ANSA) - Rome, December 23 - Under-fire Lazio manager Vladimir Petkovic on Monday agreed to coach Switzerland from July 2014 to the end of 2015.

Former Lazio coach Edy Reja is favourite to take back the Roman club's bench from the Bosnian, whose position is in serious doubt. Lazio lost 4-1 at Verona Sunday and are seventh in Serie A, 26 points behind leaders Juventus.

Petkovic, 50, is a naturalised Swiss who has coached several Swiss clubs including multiple champs Sion.

Reja managed Lazio from 2010 to 2012.
