Lazio coach Reja rates Klose ahead of AC Milan's Ibrahimovic

Lazio boss Edy Reja rates Miroslav Klose ahead of AC Milan star Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Reja reflected on the duo's strengths and declared that the one he works with on a daily basis is the better player.

"They are two different champions," the 65-year-old Coach told Lazio Style. "The Swede is more spectacular and individualistic, Miro is more practical and prefers the collective.

"He drops back and helps out the team, it is rewarding for him. I did not think he had this fight, but he plays a fundamental part in build-up play as well as in finishing moves.

"Klose works a bit more on the collective strategies of the team and then in the final quarter of the pitch is invincible. He is a smart player, even when looking at where to shoot."
