  08/01/2012: Reja: "I apologize, this is not my Lazio"

With everyone lost for words after an abysmal display against Siena, Edy Reja took responsibility and apologized for the fans.

"This is the worst game since I have taken charge at Lazio. I apologize to the fans. Today it was as if we were absent, I take full responsibility. This team is not my Lazio, the team's potential showed in the first half of the season. But we ended 2011 with a disaster against Chievo, and we started 2012 in the worse way possible. I still don't know what happened or why that happened. We must think of the reasons, yes Siena were well prepared. We only showed a reaction when we were 3-0 down, but it was already too late and it was as then a matter of us waiting for the game to end."

Reja was asked to comment on Sculli's substitution as the player showed his disatisfaction at being called out. 

"He had a yellow card, and he seemed nervous so I wanted to avoid another red card, he asked me to leave him on to play another five minutes, but I could not risk it."

I dont think Sculli should be any where near our starting line up to start with, if he wasnt good enough for Genoa why is he good enough for us that isnt to sya that he is completly useless but would prefer somenone better in his position.
