The Italian took the reins midway through the 2013-14 season and had one year left on his contract.

Reja said in a club statement: "It's right that Lazio makes a coaching change. I consider my experience here to have ended.

"The (club) president (Claudio Lotito) had given me his support but I told him that it was over, that my cycle here had finished."

The 68-year-old Reja was in his second spell with Lazio, having coached them between 2010 and 2012.

Lazio finished ninth in Serie A and failed to qualify for European football next season.

Stefano Pioli, who was unable to help Bologna defend their Serie A status last campaign, has been strongly linked with the vacancy created by Reja's departure.

alcao really needs to shine now. Apparently according to the stats, he scores more when played up front alone. I wonder if Van Gaal will actually apply a formation to get the best out of him though.
