Tuesday afternoon Edy Reja gathered several journalists at Formello to speak about the upcoming match against Catania.

"When you are achieving significant results, continuity is important to continue to grow" was the first words Reja had to say.

"It is clear that I will have some difficulties tomorrow. Many players are not fully fit, but I will only play the ones that are 100%. Our goal this season is to reach europe. My wish is that we can reach Champions League. The president has spent a lot on this team and has brought in players of international level. We are doing well now, and I am pleased with the group and how hard they are working. The result of this we will see at the end of the championship, I do not know how far we can go. I hope we can be the surprise this season. It is however hard when we loose key players, we play every third day now. We have done better in the attacking department, but we still need to improve. If we can do this we will become an important team."

The coach did not have any significant updates on the injuries: "Brocchi did train yesterday. He did everything that was asked of him. We will have to see today and tomorrow morning. I will only play those who are 100%, if Brocchi can not play I will use Cana. We also have to analyze Hernanes. If he can not play tomorrow I hope to have him ready on sunday."

Reja was also asked about his opponent tomorrow, the former Roma player Vincenzo Montella now the boss at Catania: "I have always liked his intelligence and tactical approach."
