The 49-year-old won the Coppa Italia with the Biancocelesti against rivals Roma last Sunday, thus qualifying the capital city club for the Europa League next season.

According to Tuttosport, the contract extension was offered as reward for the victory.

Petkovic, who has spent most of his managerial career in Switzerland, has signed a one-year extension on his current deal keeping him with Lazio until June 2015.
