  27/05/2014: Further doubt cast on Reja's future
email print  
 
Edy Reja's future has been in doubt since the end of the season, or perhaps before. The Gorizian managed made it clear that he felt the club needed a major overhaul, and intimated his desire to sit down with Claudio Lotito and Igli Tare as soon as possible to clarify his position.

The meeting was expected to take place the day after the season ended, but it never occurred. It was then expected to take place the next day, but it is believed that only a phonecall between Lotito and Reja took place. Last week, Igli Tare suggested that a discussion on the way forward had not taken place, but he also expressed his desire to have that conversation.

Yet the conversation has not taken place, and in an event organised to announce the plans for a new academy, Edy Reja was a notable absentee. It was well-documented in the media that he would not be attending and further still, it was announced during the gathering. This has led many journalists to believe that Edy Reja is close to leaving Lazio.

On this occasion, Reja may have a viable alternative. Francesco Guidolin has called time on his managerial career and it is well-known that both Guidolin and Udinese's owner Giampaolo Pozzo hold Reja in high regard. This morning, both Il Tempo and La Repubblica have linked Reja with the Udinese hotseat, and we wait to hear from Reja on the matter.
