“It was a wrong choice, it destroyed the team. He is a man of conflicts, can never become a coach. After each match there were tensions with the press, created clashes in the team. He does not think about football, but just about money. When I communicated the dismissal, he told me immediately that he would ask for the last cent, he also asked premio about the matches played under Reja. It is not an economic issue, but of ethical correctness,” Duka said, focusing on the future of the national team, Edi Reja:

“At first he had a little doubt, then Igli Tare phoned and persuaded him to become Albania's coach. Edi is a very experienced coach, a scholar coach. He has put a smile back on the squad and has a constructive climate in the team,” the AFF president said in an interview to TuttoSport.
