The Lazio patron says regretfully says good bye to Uncle Edy through a letter published on the club's official website.
With Edy Reja announcing his departure, and Lazio denying any reports of the coach leaving, it appears that the decision has been finally made.
Claudio Lotito published an official statement signed by him and it waved good bye to Edy Reja.
The statement read:
Dear Coach, although respecting your decision to cease your collaboration with Lazio, I cannot help but represent the sincere disappointment with which I personally, the club and the players took the news,” wrote Lotito.
Your management has taken this team to important results over the last two years and you had the merit of creating a solid and coherent ‘group,’ thanks to the character you gave them.
You also had the necessary strength to overcome at times harsh criticism, inspiring security and calm in the Lazio camp, which were necessary to achieve these results.
Lazio are grateful for all you have done and the teachings I will treasure. I want you to know that the doors of Formello will always be open for you, in the certainty this group will remain in your heart as a symbol of one of the greatest moments of your career."
