Lazio Appoint Davide Ballardini As New Coach - Report

The former Palermo man, as expected, has signed a deal with Lazio which will see him become coach for the next two years, according to Sky Sport Italia...

Lazio have appointed Davide Ballardini on a two-year deal and the new coach will be unveiled officially at the club's Formello headquarters at 12pm tomorrow, according to the latest reports in Italy.

Both Sky Sport Italia and La Repubblica are reporting that the club have already announced the appointment, but there has not been an official statement on Lazio's website just yet.

Earlier reports claimed Ballardini was seen in Rome and he was set to meet with Lotito this afternoon to put pen to paper. That seems to have happened already, and it is suggested the coach has been given a two-year deal worth €750,000 per season.

The new coach will fill the vacant position which was left by coach Delio Rossi who quit the club last week after a four year spell there. Rossi led the Aquillotti to Coppa Italia glory which resulted with a place in next season's Europa League.

Ballardini arrives from Palermo after just one season at the helm.
