The 21-year-old Brazilian scored and set-up two against Samp, and has now been involved in eight of the Aquile’s last nine league goals with four goals and four assists.
“I can only compliment my players for this performance, we had consistency and also quality,” the 49-year-old tactician told Sky Sport Italia after the match.
We changed our attitude against Inter after the break, thinking we could sit back and rest on the 2-0 lead, but that draw taught us a lesson.”
“Felipe Anderson? I found a player of great talent and technique.
The previous season was tough for everyone at Lazio, but we worked hard and obviously he needed confidence and regular playing time.”
“Of course there is great rivalry,” he continued.
“The team did well to stay concentrated on Sampdoria and now we can prepare for this very important match with the right belief and calm.”
