Petkovic demands Lazio improvement

6 November 2013 20:26

Lazio coach Vladimir Petkovic has issued a rallying cry ahead of his side's UEFA Europa League clash with Apollon Limassol.

Petkovic has come in for criticism following a poor run of just one win in eight games for the Rome outfit in all competitions, although Lazio president Claudio Lotito gave the Bosnian his backing following the 2-0 Serie A defeat to Genoa on Sunday.

Now Petkovic is determined to repay that faith, starting with a positive result in Thursday's Group J game against Cypriot side Limassol.

He said at a press conference: "It’s normal to ask for more from your players,

"But in some cases, our efforts have not been repaid. Against the likes of Fiorentina, Atalanta and Genoa we’ve just hit some bad luck.

"Sometimes we have come unstuck after dominating. Then our mistakes have been punished.

"We have to use these results as a wake-up call.

"Tomorrow we want to win. I trust that of my players have the same appetite as me."

Lazio are second in Group J, two points behind Turkish side Trabzonspor, who face Legia Warsaw in Poland.
