  12/09/2011: Reja confident team can do better

Edy Reja spoke today to Lazio Style Radio and analyzed the team after the encounter with Milan and ahead of the Europa League kick off against Vaslui. Lamenting a lost victory, Reja said: "I wanted to come back home with a win, we played very well in the beginning of the game, but we could not keep our pace for all of the game and force our play, we lose possession easily further on. We were good tactically and technically but Milan capitalized when we were no longer in control of the game. We faced some problems but the squad responded well and I lament the misses from Cisse and Hernanes, maybe they would have changed the result."

Then Reja went on to discuss Klose and Cisse: "They were great in their debut, they interacted well together and concluded their performances with a goal. But I believe they can still do better especially when time passes by and they get used to the environment more. Klose had played twice with the national team and he had an ankle problem. Cisse is always looking for goals, but sometimes he plays with haste. However what we did for 30 minutes at Milan, we must be able to repeat at 60 minutes in the upcoming games. Now we have a test against Vaslui and then Genoa, and for each game I will be changing 4 to 5 players, we will assess the conditions of the players and choose the appropriate starting 11. We must win the upcoming two games and we cannot go wrong against Vaslui."
