Reja says Lazio can finish in top two

Edy Reja says Lazio's target this season is second-place.

Lazio are five points adrift of leaders AC Milan, but so far the only side to keep up that Scudetto pace.

“Our target for 2011 is to maintain our current position, so the objective is second place,” said Reja.

“It would be very important for the future of this club if we became accustomed to staying in the top spots. To do that we need planning and ideas, because we don’t have the money of other clubs.”

The year started with a 0-0 draw at Genoa, but full points are expected tomorrow against relegation strugglers Lecce.

“So far we have had a few problems against the smaller sides, especially on home turf, yet did very well against the big clubs and proved we deserve to be in second.

“Lecce have caused a lot of difficulties for many opponents, such as Napoli. These are dangerous games precisely because the result seems obvious, but it isn’t. There’s a tough month ahead of us and we’re convinced that we can do well.”
