Edy Reja is not afraid to admit Lazio “were very lucky, as Lecce deserved at least a point from this game.”
The Biancocelesti snatched a last-gasp 3-2 victory at the Stadio Via del Mare with Miroslav Klose’s brace after surviving several scares.
“We know Klose’s strength and if you leave him for a second in the penalty area, he will not let you get away with it,” smiled the Coach.
“Today we can say without doubt that we had problems and were very lucky. I expected a different performance, as my men suffered for the entire match.
“We were able to bring home the three points thanks to our strikers. I appreciate the way the team fought on a difficult evening, though.
“Lecce deserved at least a point from this game.”
