Lazio president Claudio Lotito has rejected the resignation of coach Edy Reja.
Reja offered to resign on Sunday night after defeat to Genoa.
â€śItâ€™s true, I did not accept the resignation and would not let the Coach go,â€ť Lotito told Sky Sport Italia.
â€śAs long as I am the President, the Coach will be untouchable. Reja just wanted to express his unhappiness at a city that does not love him.
â€śHe is very disappointed at the negative climate that has been created around him despite the fact he is a man who has given a great deal to Lazio.
â€śI wanted to call the squad together so we can all close ranks around the Coach and he knows the club and players are with him.
â€śWe will all begin again from Wednesdayâ€™s game with Cesena.â€ť
