Reja: ' Cisse is a beast!'

Edy Reja is confident Lazio can build on last season and do even better. “Djibril Cissè is a beast in the box!”

The Biancocelesti challenged for a Champions League place right to the final round, eventually finishing in fifth position.

“In terms of experience, quality and personality we have improved this season, but still need to do better, as these are the areas where we were lacking last term, despite it being an extraordinary campaign,” said the Coach.

“Repeating what we achieved in 2010-11 would be very satisfying, as it would mean consolidating our status in the top spots.

“Now our attention is also focused on the Europa League, so we are looking to players at an international level.”

Among these signings are ex-Liverpool and Panathinaikos striker Cissè.

“In a joking manner I call him The Beast in the box, as he puts such ferocity and passion into pouncing on every ball and firing towards goal. He has an incredible physique.”
