Reja: 'Scudetto? We'll see'

Edy Reja praised every member of his Lazio side and wouldn't rule out a Scudetto push. “We'll see how the table looks at the halfway stage.”

The Biancocelesti leapt into second place after this evening's comfortable 2-0 win away to Bologna.

They are in fine form, notching up four Serie A victories and a draw in this current unbeaten run.

“It went well and we didn't run any real risks here. It's very important that the fans stay behind us like this, as if they believe in the squad then we can achieve great things,” said the Coach.

“Can we win the Scudetto? Italian football is very difficult, as don't forget last season we got off to a very strong start too.

“We will keep working hard, then wait and see how the table looks at the halfway stage to understand what level we're at, but without setting objectives.

“The important thing is to play with intensity and tonight not one of my players was insufficient in his performance. Senad Lulic was particularly impressive.”

However, Reja has some concerns ahead of Wednesday's match with Catania.

“Hernanes has a swollen ankle and Matuzalem went off with muscular problems. I'll have to invent something for the next game, but I can say the squad is able to cover these issues.

“Djibril Cissè is improving compared to recent performances and has rediscovered the right spirit.”
