Before daily training, Felipe Anderson spoke in press conference:

“We are not surprised by our position in Serie A, we know our values and our potential. We are on the right way but we can do even better. We have to aim higher as possible; we can reach goals that at the beginning of the season seemed unthinkable. We think to win every game, even the most difficult, because we have a strong team with high-quality young players.

I am a striker, I’d like to play as a offensive midfilder, but the coach knows that I will give all my best in every position. I want to do well, I feel the confidence of the coach. On the wing I can help the team with my speed. Lots of people say that I am a discontinuous footballer but now I'm finding continuity. It has to be my best season.

I always thought to do the best for me and for the team. This year I had to make a different preparation, because in August I took part in the Olympic Games. Now I feel in top physical condition. If I continue to work following the methods of the coach I can do a high-level season. The Derby is a special match for Lazio’s supporters.

I still haven’t won the Derby, this year we have the opportunity to win it but we have to think about it at the right time. Now we have to be focused on the next game.The day that I win the Derby, certainly I will live a very special moment. We have so many good strikers, like Kishna, Lombardi and Djordjevic: they will give their contribution during the season. They can help us a lot. During the season everyone of us will train and will play to help Lazio.

I came here to show all my value, I never thought that Lazio could represent a temporary destination. I extended my contract because Lazio is a great club. I love this city, I want to continue to grow up with Lazio. Keita is a great player, we played a lot together. When we are in the field, we must always think about how we can help the team”.
