Lazio winger Felipe Anderson was in high spirits after the 3-1 win over Genoa last night.
Speaking in an interview with Italian radio broadcaster Lazio Style Radio (via LazioNews24) after the game, the 28-year-old Brazilian winger first commented on his mentality after yesterday’s win.
I always try to give everything for the team. Sometimes I don’t succeed, but what counts is the team and the collective.
Today the victory was important.
He spoke highly of fellow Lazio winger Pedro.
He did a great job of being in the right place. Giving him the ball was very easy.
Felipe Anderson commented on Maurizio Sarri’s project in Rome.
We’ve been working for a long time, we talk to the coach and his staff to understand what he asks of us.
We knew we had started a new project, but we are understanding what the coach wants.
The former West Ham man touched on the first goal scored against Genoa, which he provided the assist for.
We’ve studied this pressure over the past few days. Then the team helped me anyway, staying high.
We did very well.
Finally, Felipe Anderson highlighted the team’s growth so far this season and the importance of last night’s win over Genoa.
We’re trying to be more solid. Too often we went into difficulty. We have to find our game.
Today we talked and communicated more. Victories help us to work better and grow.
The 28-year-old Felipe Anderson, who is contracted to Lazio until 2025, has made 24 appearances across all competitions so far this season, for a total of 1725 minutes. In that time, he has scored four goals and provided four assists.
He has struggled with inconsistency this season under coach Maurizio Sarri, but when he is performing well he is one of the best players on the pitch for the Biancocelesti.
