  12/08/2011: Reja: Lazio is strong, the objective is Champions League
email print  

„This year we added valuable players to an already strong team. Our objective remains the Champions League, after the qualification eluded us last year. Cisse and Klose? Players who know how to score goals and we're hoping they will score goals for us to fulfill the set objective – added the coach – our fans are extraordinary, we hope to give them all great satisfaction.“

Great ovations from the Curva Nord for the veterans Ledesma and Rocchi, and for the brazilian Hernanes. „There are great expectations this year, we are happy because of the enthusiasm created – confessed the captain, addressing the fans – We will try to win the derby for our fans.“ The most applauded were, as expected, Klose and Cisse, and naturally Olympia. The biancoceleste eagle was presented in her usual pre-game flight.

When asked about the booes and whistles, Reja responds: „To me it's nothing new, I'm used to it, it's a habit. It's clear that they do not like what I've done in the past year and a half. I think I deserve more respect at a human level.“ As for the mercato, the Lazio coach admits:„No more arrivals I think. I expect departures.“
