After the game, the Brazilian, who has scored four goals in 15 games in a red jersey, said he had to deal with a “really difficult moment” and claimed he was “in shock”.
He said: “I’m very grateful to God to put this behind me now, grateful to the club, the players and the manager. Everyone stayed by my side.
“It was a really, really difficult moment for me days ago. But God was always on my side and I am also grateful to my family. I dedicate this goal to them, in moments like these you know who really loves you.”

“First of all, it’s a feeling of joy,” he told TNT Sports after the game. “I’m happy to score again, especially at home.
“I’ve set a few goals for myself this season and it’s good to score once I’ve started thinking about personal goals. But the most important thing, of course, is United’s qualification for the next level.
“That’s my frame of mind now. I am 100 per cent focused on honoring the fans and the club. We all know the greatness of this club and we want to get United back where they deserve.
