  01/04/2012: Reja: "We are playing without 7-8 players"

Edy Reja has said to the Italian media that his "stuttering" Lazio side is still suffering from injury troubles. Having blamed the result on an "unacceptable lack of concentraion" in the opening 12 minutes, the coach has continued to explain that last night's result could have been different with different players on the field:

"We're still third in the table, playing with 7-8 players less, we miss Lulic and Klose who are both important players for this team."

"The absence of Klose is important, he has the ability to change the game as he is a champion. I regret the lack of players of his calibre, we have been unlucky with injuries and when Klose comes back, he will not be at his best. He has to adjust to the rhythm of the game again. So, not only do I have to wait a month for him, but longer and I will have to find something within this group."

"We now have two head-to-heads coming up (Napoli, Udinese) to fight for third place."
