“In the locker room there is a good relationship with the players. The problems lie outside” – said Edy Reja after last nights’ win against Cesena. “They are always looking for a problem that doesn’t exist. Today is said I have a problem with the fans, which is false. The fans are free to express themselves. I have always felt the coach of Lazio, only sometimes I get tired, I get fed up. I spoke with the president and he convinced me to stay”. The Lazio coach spoke after the game: “The boys have suffered as I in this period. I am happy because today finally a good result has arrived and I hope the success will give a positive boost for the team. The fans? They can appreciate or not appreciate the team and coach. I repeat. The problem is outside, because there are people who make controversies, which are not there and are enjoying the negative results as it was the case with Zarate, when incredible stories were made up even when we didn’t speak” – said Reja for

President Lotito spoke on the situation: “The media should not instigate and create controversy and negative aspects, because some people react badly and say things to Reja like “Either you go or I will kill you”. Edy is a great person and professional, but if you are 65 and you go for a walk with your wife and you find yourself in front of five six fans shouting “you got to go” it is not justifiable. This is the fault of the newspapers that create the controversy. Why people always say “it’s Reja’s fault and he must go” even when I back him? Why continue to attack him? I agree with constructive criticism, but not the destructive. I don’t allow anyone to interfere with his choices. I remember that Edy has taken this team from the relegation zone and brought it to the 4th spot and Champions League. The truth is there are people trying to destabilize the environment” – added Lotito.
