Edy Reja is more than satisfied with the win of his boys last night. Reja knows the true tests are about to come, but doesn't want to underestimate the win over Rabotnicki. "The merits of Lazio are all for the mentality of the players" he stated and also said: "I asked the boys not to relax, to avoid their counterattack and win with a good score". The coach stressed that even if Rabotnicki tried to play football, Lazio was too superior and the real tests are coming.

Reja went on commenting the new names in the team - Cisse and Klose. "Cisse is a classic forward, who is satisfied only when he scores." The coach added, that the only thing he wants from the Frenchman is to attack the goal. Then Edy continued on Klose "
He worked hard, moved a lot in all areas of the field, helped by opening spaces for other players and was holding the ball. When you have two strikers up front it is so much easier, they are valuable players, physical, know how to wait for the right moment." - concluded the tactician. But he also praised the work of his midfield, pointing out the good game of Brocchi and Mauri. "Senad Lulic is also improving after the first appearances in some friendly matches" - added Reja, meaning the Bosnian will need some time after his injury

Something else thrilled the coach beside the win last night. A banner saying "Reja the Curva Nord is with you" was seen in the stands. "After all the boos I liked it a lot. It gave me comfort" - Edy said. He went on thanking the fans for this award. "I leave complete freedom for the fans who love this team, but I don't like to be the reason for every problem in the team. It is not right" - finished the coach.
