The Brazilian was subject to criticism following his failed attempt at a Cruyff turn, leading to Rachid Ghezzal’s goal as the pressure mounted.
And the 25-year-old seems to have already learned from his error, as he told ESPN Brasil in the mixed zone at the King Power.
“It was bad judgement. I made a mistake reading the play. I didn’t get a very good pass,” he insisted.
“We talked about that in the dressing room and I spoke to Virgil. It wasn’t a good pass but I could have just kicked it long.
“I wanted to keep playing and keep the possession. Now everyone is going to analyse that.
“I’m not going to be stupid and make the same mistake. We have to learn from our mistakes.”
Recognising that his attempts to “keep the possession” were at fault, and that he “could have just kicked it long,” suggests he is already aware of how to improve.
He continued to describe dribbling as a “last resort” for goalkeepers, no doubt experiencing a hangover from his spell in Serie A, which is typically less intensive.
“It is part of my game but I am not going to be arrogant to stand here and say I’m going to keep doing it. We have to learn from our mistakes,” he added.
“If it is necessary the dribble has to be the last resort. Unfortunately today it caused the goal.
“I actually think it was a foul but I don’t want to blame it on that.
“In the Premier League it’s not the kind of contact that results in a foul. It’s part of the game. I just have to make sure that doesn’t happen again.”
