On Friday Reja revealed â€ś10 playersâ€ť had turned Lazio down during the January transfer window, though sports chief Igli Tare insisted it was nowhere near that many.
â€śIt was actually five or six players who didnâ€™t want to come here. Itâ€™s not that they rejected Lazio because of the club, but with Jonathan Biabiany it was practically done and he didnâ€™t want to leave Parma.
â€śWe asked Alessandro Matri and he chose Fiorentina, we spoke to Fabio Quagliarella and he said heâ€™d be willing to come at the end of the season.
â€śWe signed Helder Postiga because Miroslav Klose canâ€™t play every game. He is a Portuguese international who won in Europe. We didnâ€™t just bring in some unknown quantity.â€ť
