  26/10/2011: Sculli: "The team is growing"

With major injury problems Edy Reja decided to give the italian Giuseppe Sculli a rare start. When speaking in the mix zone after the match Sculli was disappointed to not be on the winning side: "We do feel the heavy program this season. I had chances to score this evening but was not able to find the net. When I play with players like Klose and Cissé I feel more confident. It is true that there is many injuries, but we also have a big squad so there is room for everyone. For example Tommaso Rocchi has not been used a single minute, but he is an important player that has scored alot of goals. I hope he will get more chances soon because he deserves it. We have players on the bench that are just as strong as the ones who are playing."

Even if Sculli believes in the depth of the squad he admits certain players have played alot of matches lately: "Some players have played alot lately and it is noticeable. Today the performance was there, but it is hard when you play every third day. We play again on sunday, then at home on thursday. We will try to do well because we have a very strong team. We are improving every match and today we should have finished it earlier. I say that Lazio is very much alive."
