Speaking to Radio Mana Sport, ex-Lazio manager Edy Reja has claimed that he did a better job during his time at Lazio than Vladimir Petkovic has managed so far.

"Petkovic has made a good impact on Serie A and you have to compliment him. However, he could and should have hit third place. Although I did my job with my team, his workforce was much better than mine, especially in number, and I did better than him. I made a minor minacle in my two-and-a-half years but I received so much unjustified criticism. I dealt with many injuries and come January, I found myself without a team. Fortunately, Candreva came along following my insistance."

Reja went on to cite disagreements with the management following the departures of Cissé, Sculli, Cavanda, Stendardo and Foggia without any replacement other than Antonio Candreva as the reason for his eventual departure. He said Lazio should qualify for the Champions League, that Zarate needs to take a look at himself rather than others for his fall from grace, and Zio Edy also said that neither Elez or Vukisic - two of Lazio's transfer targets - were ready for Lazio.
