Lazio have dismissed reports that manager Vladimir Petkovic has tendered his resignation from the club.

The Rome outfit have endured an indifferent start to the new campaign, with 11 points returned from eight top-flight matches, leaving them ninth in the table.

Lazio suffered a further setback when they were defeated 2-1 at Atalanta on Sunday, leading to intense speculation that Petkovic had ended his 16-month tenure at the Stadio Olimpico.

Reports suggested that the club could look to former player Sinisa Mihajlovic or ex-boss Edy Reja to take the reins, but Lazio have denied that the 50-year-old has left.

A statement of the their official website read: “Regarding the rumours spread this evening (Sunday), about the alleged resignation of coach Vladimir Petkovic, SS Lazio can state that the news is totally unfounded.”

Lazio’s next challenge comes when they travel to Apollon on Thursday for their UEFA Europa League tie, before they continue their Serie A season at home to Cagliari on Sunday.
