Lazio winger Felipe Anderson is hoping to carry over his strong form to tonight’s match against Olympique Marseille.
Speaking to gathered reporters in a press conference (via LazioNews24) yesterday, the 28-year-old Brazilian winger first commented on the situation in the 3-1 win over Inter on Sunday.
I came away disappointed from the last match because I’ve always been a fair man and I’m sorry for what I saw.
We will continue to stop when needed, in that moment it was right to continue the game. We have to move forward, now mentally I’m fine.
For me, the performance of the team matters, but I want to continue to do well.
He touched on why he didn’t put the ball out of play for his second goal against Inter on the weekend.
We are always ready to help, but we realised it wasn’t needed with Inter, they continued.
We will continue to stop when needed, at that moment it was right to continue the game.
Felipe Anderson spoke about his relationship with coach Sarri.
He is giving me confidence and I am satisfied with the use he is giving me.
I’m working calmly and aware of my means, I know I can do great things.
He commented on the emotional impact of scoring against his former coach and mentor Simone Inzaghi.
Scoring is always nice, beyond anything else.
I’ve always had a good relationship with Inzaghi, I’m happy that he’s having a great personal journey.
The 28-year-old Brazilian winger looked ahead to tonight’s opponents, Olympique Marseille.
Marseille are doing well and they are a team that is also doing well in their league.
We will have to be careful.
He discussed his focus and the busy schedule ahead of the team.
I always try to be focused and calm. The Inter players were nervous, I tried to stay calm. Now we have a lot of games ahead of us in a few days, we have to keep reasoning game after game.
Our squad is a family and you can see it on the pitch. I needed them against Inter, I’m proud to be part of this team.
Finally, Felipe Anderson spoke about his desire to find the back of the net in tonight’s match against Jorge Sampaoli’s side.
I want to break through in the Europa League too, against Lokomotiv Moscow I missed too many chances.
I want to give my contribution in Europe as well.
