Former Lazio defender Luiz Felipe – now playing for Roma’s upcoming Europa League rival Real Betis – reaffirmed his Biancocelesti faith in his pre-match presser ahead of tomorrow night.

“Lazio will forever remain in my heart,” he told reporters on Wednesday afternoon. “I experienced so many wonderful moments here, I won trophies and we returned to the Champions League together.”

“Now I’m here with Betis and I’m ready to give my all tomorrow,” he continued. “It is going to be a great game.”

“I haven’t spoken to my Lazio friends, but they’ve written to me, telling me I should win tomorrow.”

Finally, he concluded, “Mourinho’s brought a winning mentality to Roma. He’s helped them win, something they hadn’t done in a long time.”
