"We played well in the first half", stated Edorado Reja right after the 0-0 draw against city rivals Roma. 

Reja was pleased with his teams defensive performance. He wasn't that happy about Lazio's mistakes when the team was counter attacking because the team could have won a valuable win against their arch rivals. 

"We missed our chances when counter attacking. Roma had more dribbling ability but we managed to stay calm in defense."

"Mauri came on because I wanted him to help in the midfield so that Totti and De Rossi wouldn't get that much balls and free space." 

"He was tired before coming on the field", said Reja smiling. 

"The only way Mauri can recover is to play and get more time on the pitch. He will do better in future. I'm sorry about my comments towards Garcia's team and the injuries. I shouldn't have said those jokes." 

"We made some changes when I came and players like Ledesma, Dias and Klose are fundamental to my tactics.
