The midfielder only arrived in the summer from Bahia and is currently the country's leading goalscorer.
He told Record: "I did imagine this could happen because I know how hard I worked when with Bahia.
"I always looked to improve. I was never perfect, always had my mistakes and always looked to correct them. I knew that one day this would happen. With work, and with time we will conquer all."
Talisca added: "Five years ago I earned 50 euros a month (at Bahia).
"I am happy, thank God, everything is going to work out."
