Lazio coach Edy Reja is upset about the appointment of a sports shrink to his staff.
President Claudio Lotitoâ€™s employment of a sports psychologist infuriated the players and tactician ahead of Sundayâ€™s game with Cagliari.
â€śI hope this time in the ritiro has helped, both physically and in terms of mentality. I feel as if the team is more united than ever,â€ť said Reja.
â€śI donâ€™t think we need a professional psychologist or motivator to find that unity. This is what a Coach is supposed to give and he must take responsibility.
â€śWhen I arrived here I certainly found the club a little disorganised. There is upset, the lads are unhappy. Weâ€™ve realised that we need to get ourselves out of this situation.
â€śFrom now on, every decision taken within the club will be mine. I do not want interference regarding organisation, a ritiro or team affairs. I am the only one to take responsibility and the players must focus on working and I will motivate them.
â€śI am completely autonomous. If my decisions are accepted, then thatâ€™s great, otherwise I can go back where I came. This is where I stand for the rest of the season.â€ť
