Livorno striker Tomas Danilevicius has played down his heroics in their victory over Sampdoria.

Danilevicius' goals sealed the three points as Livorno came back from behind to win and lift themselves out of the drop zone going into the annual winter break.

“I am happy because it's a very important victory for us, but I don't feel like a hero. I am only doing my job,” the former Arsenal striker said.

Asked how he felt on receiving the compliments of Livorno President Aldo Spinelli, he replied: “Aldo has always had beautiful words to say about me and I thank him again, but I know what my role is and I try to do my job when the Coach calls.”
