Lazio coach Edy Reja says Djibril Cisse will be staying.

There have been reports that Cissè could leave in January after failing to score in Serie A since the opening weekend.

"Cissè is a proud lad who can't stand this sort of performance," explained Reja. "He seems to be physically fit, now he just needs to rediscover that faith in himself.

"I hope it can happen tomorrow, because my intention is to play him and I'd like for Cissè to break his drought, as he can give us a big hand."
