One Of The Most Vital Player In Sarri's Squad: Felipe Anderson

September 29, 2022

Felipe Anderson is said to be at his best again this season after returning to Lazio last year. The Brazilian is at the Olimpico for the second time after two years away from the Italian Serie A League.

Brazilian winger Felipe Anderson has endured a difficult few years after joining West Ham in the summer of 2018 from Lazio for a fee of 38 million euros. He scored 12 goals and provided 13 assists in 73 games during his two-year career with the Premier League club before being loaned to Portuguese club Porto, but the winger failed to impress. The 29-year-old opted to return to the Olimpico in July last year for a fee of 3 million euros.

Corriere dello Sport reports that Anderson appears to have begun to rediscover his magic after returning to the Italian capital, playing a key role in Maurizio Sarri's side. Anderson has learned to be more concrete, and more decisive. His plays have refined, he works clean and dirty. He is one of the six Lazio players who have always played in the first seven days of the championship (with Zaccagni, Immobile, Milinkovic, Patric, and Marusic). So far, he has played all 9 seasonal matches (2 of the Europa League).

This season, the winger has dribbled the ball 9 times, averaged 2.29 shots and 10 steals in 90 minutes per game, and is a key player on both ends of the pitch. Despite scoring just one goal and providing an assist in his first seven Serie A games this season, he has proven to be a vital part of Maurizio Sarri's Lazio squad.

Felipe loves Lazio, has signed a three-year contract, and is due to expire in 2024. He will remain next year when the possible renewal is to be discussed. He will turn thirty in April, when he arrived he was 20. In ten years many things have happened, and many he has learned. And now "Pipe" has returned to guide his destiny.
