The Brazilian shone against the Cottagers, pulling the strings in midfield during his 70-minute outing, though he admits that he has a little further to go before he will attain full match fitness after missing several weeks with a hamstring injury.
“I'm not one-hundred percent fit yet,” he said. “I need maybe one or two more games, then I think I'll be one-hundred percent. It's important for me to not have any injuries anymore.
“Just when I think everything is fine I have to get back again, stay out for one month, come back and now it starts to go slowly. No problems, training is good, no problems.”
