"I knew it was going to be a difficult season for me, coming back from a difficult injury," the Brazilian said. "Unfortunately, I got another bad one at the beginning of the season.
"I played half of the season and in the last five or six games I really felt better.
"Next season is going to be an important one for me because I think I will be at the level I was before the injury.
"This season was positive because I could get through the injuries and the games. Of course I want to do better because we can always do better."
