Lazio President Claudio Lotito says he has never had any doubts about Edy Reja amid uncertainty regarding his future.
Reja is unpopular with Lazio fans even though they are well placed to qualify for next year's Champions League.
"We have never had the problem of hiring a new Coach and we have never thought about replacing Reja," said Lotito.
"I have great respect and consideration for the Coach and I believe that there is a good relationship between us."
Looking ahead to Saturday's game against Inter, Lotito said: "They have shown themselves to be a great team and we'll go into the game with the same profile as we did against Catania, obviously with great determination and a good dose of humility.
"In this way we can do well," he concluded.
