Edy Reja hails “an extraordinary campaign in which everything is going down to the wire,” including Lazio’s European ambitions.
The Biancocelesti had tumbled out of third place, but are back in the running after a 2-0 win away to Atalanta.
“Finally the victory arrived and we had been waiting for it,” said the Coach. “This is an extraordinary campaign in which everything is going down to the wire, safety, Europe and Scudetto.
“If we beat Inter in the final round and Udinese lose at Catania, then we will go into third place. Naturally, we will give it our all to get the three points.”
There was a huge injury crisis in Bergamo, but Lazio still emerged with a win as Lorik Cana scored a rare goal.
“Cana crowned a great performance with a splendid goal. We also have Senad Lulic and Miroslav Klose back and clearly with players of this quality at our disposal it all becomes easier.
“Now we are fired up to the hilt and reach the final test after overcoming so many obstacles.”
However, Reja was irritated by continual questions on whether it’ll be his last match on the Lazio bench.
“Every end of the season you ask me the same questions. Quite simply, we will meet with the directors and continue if there are the right conditions, otherwise we will shake hands and remain friends.”
