Klose impresses Lazio boss

Lazio Coach Edy Reja has praised the professionalism and ability of new signing Miroslav Klose.

The 33-year-old German joined the outfit on a free transfer from Bayern Munich and he's scored five goals in seven games for his new club.

"He's extraordinary and very important for us," the capital tactician told Lazio Style Radio after the striker netted the winner at Fiorentina on Sunday.

"He lives his life correctly, his head is in the right place and he's a true athlete," continued the tactician.

"Some players may have advanced years, but with their training methods they can last for some time to come.

"Many of us saw him as a finisher, but he's also a very technical player who can beat his man and plays for the good of the team.

"He has incredible power and he doesn't hold back. Fortunately he came to Lazio."
