Lucas Veríssimo says he was 100% « seven months ago », but ended up leaving Benfica to play more.
Transferred to Corinthians, Lucas Veríssimo is gaining his space and regrets the one he didn’t have at Benfica because of Roger Schmidt’s philosophy. « I had a complicated operation, but everything went well. I’ve been fine for seven months, 100 percent, I just needed to play. I was available at Benfica, but the coach likes to repeat the team, he didn’t move much and I ended up playing little « , he said after the draw (0-0) with Palmeiras, on Sunday.
« I came to be able to help, to contribute and I hope I’m doing it very well. But I want more, I want Corinthians to also improve in the classification of the Brasilerião », he added.
