  17/04/2011: Reja:"I'll bench Zarate all the time"

Edy Reja joked after the match that if Mauro Zarate reacts like he did today after coming on then he will start him from the bench every game. Zarate was originally sent to the bench for today's clash with Catania, for being late for training, but Giuseppe Sculli picked up an injury after only 14 minutes allowing Zarate to step onto the field. The Argentine put in surely his best performance of the season, setting up 2 goals before scoring a delightful freekick.

“I must compliment him. He was not in the starting eleven and it upset him. I have to make my decisions for the good of the squad, so by turning up late to training he had to be punished. It was an exceptional performance from him and indeed all of the team today.”

(Giannino Capaldi)
