Speaking to Raisport after the 1-0 loss against Napoli in the quarterfinals of the Coppa Italia;

"I was very annoyed after the game because Napoli tonight seemed within our grasp.
I would have loved to play this match out again in full. We had to cope with a series of incidents, both before and during the match".

"There were many young players on the field, but you have to grow and learn and gain experience. We did everything possible to win and progress but were unfortunate not to win. However, we must quickly move on from this match. We now have two objectives, the Europa League and to move up in the league", stated Reja.

The host then asked Reja about Hernanes and whether he will be leaving this month or not;

The rumours about Hernanes leaving do not concern me. I prefer not to talk about this topic. I do not know if he is for sale, I do not know if he wants to leave. You will need to ask him and his agent as there is so much speculation around his future", he said.

Reja was then asked about Federico Marchetti and whether his exclusion from the starting lineup against Napoli means he is exiting Lazio;

"Marchetti has recently had some health problems. He is our goalkeeper and when he is fully fit and healthy he will regain his place between the posts".
