  19/09/2011: BREAKING NEWS: Lotito rejects Reja resignation
email print  
 
In a meeting with players and staff today, Edy Reja requested to leave Lazio. The request was promptly rejected by President Lotito but the confusion continues to surround Lazio.

Talking to the media last night, Edy Reja expressed his unwillingness to continue under these conditions. Although on the surface it seems as though he cannot handle the fans' dissatisfaction, there is speculation out there that some of the players are not fully behind the coach.

Reja has told those present in the media that he wishes to resign but has yet to make an official resignation in paper. Reports suggest that Lotito is trying to keep the Gorizian tactician in Rome but the signs do not look good.

A press conference is scheduled for tomorrow with a variety of names being bandied about. Pasquale Marino, the ex-Udinese boss who failed badly at Parma last season is the favourite although ex-Roma manager Luigi Delneri is a strong contender and a coach Lotito is believed to like.
