Reina: 'Great teams always on their toes'

Pepe Reina gives his Lazio teammates advice as he makes his debut against Bologna tonight. ‘All that matters is the next match coming up.’

It kicks off at 19.45 UK time (18.45 GMT), click here for the line-ups and LIVEBLOG.

“It’s frustrating being on the bench, because you can’t directly help the team,” Reina told Lazio Style Channel.

This will be the veteran shot-stopper’s debut in the Lazio jersey, as Thomas Strakosha picked up a knock during the Champions League triumph over Borussia Dortmund.

“I want to give my contribution and I have the right mentality this evening. We’re playing every three days, so have to show the same character and grit that we displayed on Tuesday.

“Great teams are always on their toes. The last game is in the past, all that matters if the next match coming up.”
