Speaking to Sky Sports after the game against Bologna Edy Reja was a happy man and looking forward to a bright future:

"I replaced Hernanes with Scaloni when he was injured because they had a very attacking left backs creating problems on that side. It worked out well and I think it was the right choice to be more defensive when we were up 2-0. The team believes in ourself and the moral is high."

Reja was then asked about the teams chances of challenging for the scudetto: "The italian league is difficult. Last season we started very well also. We work hard, but currently we do not have any goals. The important thing is to play with intensity."

Today a certain player impressed Reja more then the others: "Lulic had a great match today. Unfortunately some players might have injuries. Hernanes has a swollen ankle and Matuzalem a muscular problem, but we still have good players available for the next game."

The coach was also asked if he is worried about his striker Djibril Cissés lack of goals:

"Cissé is growing compared to his last performance. he just needs to find his confidence."
