Edy Reja was deeply disappointed by Lazio's home defeat to Genoa. “Senad Lulic made mistakes in both goals. We have to work hard.”
The Biancocelesti were leading 1-0 after a strong first half performance, but fell apart and lost 2-1.
“Unfortunately we are not taking the good opportunities that we create, then after the break we felt the fatigue of our midweek Europa League tie,” said the Coach.
“We can take quite a lot of the blame for the goals, especially the first one, then we lost our unity. We crumbled.”
Lazio have shown this tendency throughout the campaign and have conceded six goals in their last three official matches.
“There is a lot of work to be done so we can return to the defensive levels of last season. While the midfielders track back to help out, we are able to keep a good balance, but once those stop we struggle in midfield and consequently in defence.
“Lulic made mistakes on both goals. Even if he gave the team a great deal going forward, we must work hard on improving his defensive skills.”
