"I am confident in the abilities of my team despite being injured as a squad. Against Palermo we will go and fight and we will show our strong will to be great."
"In Serie A we are doing well, and despite the bitterness from the defeat against Atletico, we will hold our head high and try to give the best performance possible against Palermo."
"Palermo are a very tough encounter on their own turf, they always play offensive football and Mutti's arrival has helped them find their rythm but our goal is the Champions League, we are now in the third place and we intend to keep it. In the first 4 games after the break we collected nine points, and despite all the injuries, all the difficulties we have given a good performance." - It is worth noting that in 2012, Lazio would be the first in the standings considering the last 4 games.
Reja then went on on the injuries:
"I hope we can continue to compete until the end, we are playing too many games, and the muscles of the players are not being fully rcovered, my recommendation for the FA is to reduce the number of teams in Serie A."
Reja then spoke about the available players:
"Mauri is training hard, he seems fit but lacks a gaming rythm. His return will be important in those final stages of the league. Stankevicius cannot even walk, Radu is injured and Lulic might not be ready, I might force Ledesma to play in a defense of three."
