Reja Confident Ahead of The Derby

Lazio manager Edy Reja praised his team after their 2-0 win over Chievo and showed some confidence in his team ahead of the Derby next Sunday.

“Sunday we have the derby, I want to see a more aggressive and lively team. We will have all week to talk nice because we come up with conviction. Roma showed great things, but we are growing. It’s nothing we take for granted.”

He then went on to comment on Lucas Biglia, who was shown a yellow card and is now suspended for the Derby della Capitale, “Biglia? It was not a bad foul, the referee could saved the booking because it wasn’t a bad foul. Destiny wanted this and I’m sorry because he is an important player, he played a clean game.”
