"He is a comedian" Rocchi told la Repubblica after Totti's comments referring to Reja as 'Roma's lucky charm'. "We can stand the joke, Totti also plays the comedian on TV. His absence doesn't matter, the coach will win this time".

Rocchi continued, "There is always a first time, the coach will win, he cannot wait to take to the field. It's obvious I'd like to play and score my 100th goal. I am ready but the coach will decide. We want to win this Derby and reverse the course of the past meetings. There are 3 crucial factors; concentration, because an episode can decide the game, we have to prove to be stronger and finally we need the will to win at all costs".

Meanwhile Reja also responded to Totti. "Never mind the talk, we need to concentrate". Reja told Radiosei, "We will make a great game on the field, we have to find concentration. We must enter the field with heart, if you play with your heart it is often shown in the result".

"The Derby is something extraordinary, but the players are sufficiently experienced and balanced. I have to give security to the team". Finally a message to the fans, "Sunday's Derby we know we will be worth the 3 points. The closer we are to the team the more satisfaction can be given to the fans. Greetings to all and Forza Lazio!"
