Lazio came back from behind twice this afternoon in the 3-2 win over Udinese thanks to 90 minute blockbuster from Hernanes. Reja commented:

"When he (Hernanes) entered the field, he had the right look. He knew he wasn't starting today but he clenched his fists and motivated his teammates. It was an amazing experience. I gave him a hand, he wants to be important for this team."

"After Udinese took the lead, I though it was over but our team gave so much and Hernanes found the winning goal. He has that ability at the edge of the area, he scored a great goal. I was time we won away from home, I told the guys it had been too long without success."

Edy Reja now called for reinforcements to beef up options for his team:

"We must do something in the market, both in defence and attack. I hope we manage to work on the mistakes of the past, we need to move ahead as we have decisive games in the league and the cup against Juventus and Napoli."

Reja had a message for Onazi who was sent off during the match. It could be seen that Reja was speaking to him after his foul and also sat him aside at full time:

"We'll talk about it later, a guy like him must understand that a mistake can cost you a game."
