List of Reja replacements at Lazio

As reports continue to swirl around that Edy Reja has resigned, the media are drawing up a list of potential replacements for Lazio.

This afternoon a shock report emerged that the Coach had sent a fax offering his resignation to the club following a row with director Igli Tare.

He was originally expected to quit straight away, but it is now confirmed Reja is on the flight to Madrid for tomorrow’s Europa League fixture against Atletico.

Reja will hold a press conference in Madrid this evening, although until then the rumour mill continues to swirl with no official response from the club.

The media are drawing up a list of potential replacements, which currently includes former striker and current Lazio youth academy trainer Simone Inzaghi sharing the bench with Angelo Crialesi.

"I know this report emerged, but nobody has contacted me about anything like this," Inzaghi told TMW.

Another option is to promote Alberto Bollini from the Primavera youth team, as favourite Gigi De Canio might not be content with a contract until June.

There is a completely separate list for who Lazio could hire for next season, such as former Biancocelesti defender Sinisa Mihajlovic, who was fired by Fiorentina earlier this term.

He cannot take over now, as under Italian rules a Coach cannot work for two different clubs in the same season.

Gian Piero Gasperini has also been linked after he was sacked by Inter in September.
