Lazio boss Edy Reja was proud of his players after their dramatic derby victory over AS Roma.

Miroslav Klose certainly left it late, scoring with practically the last kick of the game for a 2-1 victory.

"We really needed this, though for a while I thought it wasn't going to happen! We hit the woodwork twice and had so many good chances, then a few seconds from the end the ball went in," grinned the Coach who had lost four derbies on the bounce.

"We gave this great moment of joy to our fans, who followed and supported us. After this win, I hope that we can calm the atmosphere and make peace with certain sections of the fanbase.

"Now let us look ahead, for we are a point behind the Serie A leaders and we've won the derby."
