Lazio winger Felipe Anderson suggested that the club are still at the start of a long path following their loss to Galatasaray in the UEFA Europa League.
Speaking first in an interview with Italian radio broadcaster Lazio Style Radio (via LazioNews24) last night after the game, the 28-year-old Brazilian winger commented on the 1-0 loss to the Turkish side in the Biancocelesti’s Europa League opener.
The team wanted to show on the pitch what they did in training. We can’t give up now, I’m sure we’ll be able to bring home great results. We have a game based on dribbling, you have to know how to find the right moments to risk playing. We are working hard to perfect it, we can’t make mistakes.
He touched on the work that both himself and the squad need to do to continue their growth under coach Maurizio Sarri.
As I said in the first interview when I arrived, I hadn’t played for a while. The best form is obtained by playing, I hope to give satisfaction to the club and the fans. We are analysing with the staff the good and not so good things. The attitude has been the right one, coming here and trying to play our game. It’s certainly nicer to work with victories, but we’re still at the beginning of a long road.
Felipe Anderson then discussed Lazio’s 1-0 loss to Galatasaray in an interview with Italian broadcaster Sky Sports Italia.
It’s not easy when the results don’t come. Working with victories is easier. But we can’t get down on ourselves. We work a lot and we have to be focused. The results will come.
Finally, Felipe Anderson spoke about his physical condition and the upcoming match against Cagliari on Sunday evening.
In the last few seasons I didn’t play as much, but now I feel good. It’s necessary to put into practice the work we do. We need to have a great game on Sunday.
The 28-year-old Felipe Anderson has had an inconsistent start to the season under Sarri, impressing in the wins over Empoli and Spezia but struggling to maintain that form in the losses to AC Milan and Galatasaray.
