Lazio Stalwart Determined to Say Goodbye in Style

Felipe Anderson’s second stint at Lazio is drawing to a close, yet the Brazilian winger is keen to sign off in style. According to Corriere dello Sport (via LazioNews24), the 30-year-old has vowed to ‘give his all to the club’ down the final stretch of his career at the Stadio Olimpico.

After an underwhelming three-year spell at West Ham, Andreson sought refuge at Lazio, where he had previously spent five years between 2013 and 2018. Maurizio Sarri’s side welcomed him back with open arms in 2021, with the versatile forward repaying that trust with admirable commitment.

However, the time has come for the Santa Maria native to wave goodbye to the Italian capital. His contract at Lazio expires at the end of the season. Unimpressed with Claudio Lotito’s offer, he has passed on the opportunity to renew his deal and will exit the club at the end of the season.

Before the clock runs out, Anderson wants to help Lazio achieve their seasonal goals. Last season’s runner-up finish is not an attainable target, but Sarri’s men are vying for a second consecutive top-four finish. Only two points separate them from fourth-placed Atalanta ahead of Sunday’s clash in Bergamo. 

Andreson should be in the starting lineup as Lazio bid to bounce back from back-to-back scoring blanks in domestic action. With Ciro Immobile out of form, he could be Sarri’s savior in the front third. 

Once the curtain falls, Anderson could join fierce rivals Juventus.
