Marko Naletilic, Edy Reja's agent, spoke to Radio Kiss Kiss concerning the future of his client and mentioned that the renewal with Lazio is now a mere formality.

Amidts reports of Napoli losing Mazzari at the end of the season, rumours linking Reja to Napoli have been intensifying. What increased the rumours was the fact that Edy Reja dismissed any talk of renewing with Lazio during the season. 

After three consecutive defeats laziali were disgruntled and many were wondering whether the coach will be staying next season.

But now Reja's agent moves to squash any rumours of the coach's move to take over the bench at Napoli.

"I am surprised by the news linking Reja to Napoli, we never had any contact with them. Edy Reja is happy at Lazio and will renew his contract after the end of the season. We have never discussed the issue of Napoli, and all I can say is that he is happy at Lazio. Yes, Reja has a special love for Naples and its club, and has had wonderful memories there, but I just saw him a few days ago and we never even mentioned Napoli." said Naletelic to Radio Kiss Kiss.

Asked about the renewal with Lazio, Naletilic said: "Reja has requested that the renewal is postponed till the end of the season, but it is only a matter of formalities. The two parties have an agreement on economical terms. I tell you now, Reja will stay at Lazio, the agreement is a simple formality, and now Lazio are concentrating on the league." concluded Naletilic.

Such a statement will surely add on the previous declarations of Tare and Lotito who both confirmed the coach staying next season a month ago, and thus put an end to the rumours surrounding Edy Reja's future.
