Reggina striker Rolando Bianchi admits he wants revenge against Lazio today.

Former Manchester City striker Bianchi said: "Did I suffer when Lazio didn't renew my deal? Barely, because I'd already figured out after a month how it was going to end…"

Lazio president Claudio Lotito piled on the pressure this week by stating Bianchi "added no real quality" to his Lazio side.

"That's not my problem. In my six months at Lazio, I gave everything to do well and I am proud of that, looking back.

"I am not interested in what Lotito thinks, nor do his words hurt me. I say that with the utmost respect, but Lazio is in the past now.

"I have nothing to prove to anyone. This remains an important game and we will try to win, even though it'll be tough."
