Wellington aiming for title glory with São Paulo
Ahead of São Paulo's midweek clash with Universidad de Chile in the quarter-finals of the Copa Sudamericana, midfielder Wellington has spoken of his desire to win a title with the club.
Wellington, 21, has returned from cruciate ligament damage to play an important role for São Paulo in their impressive form of the second-half of the season, combining well with Arsenal loanee Denilson in midfield.
Now, with the club taking a 2-0 lead over defending champions La U into the second-leg at the Morumbi, the part Shakhtar Donetsk owned player has spoken of his desire to go down in the club's history.
"I really want to have a photo in the club. I want to be a champion very much," Wellington told Lancenet.
"We have a chance in the Sul-Americana, but in the Brasileirão there is no hope. Thus, we have to come second."
Regarding the game with Universidad de Chile, Wellington believes that the hosts must forget their lead heading into the game and approach the tie as a one-off fixture, with the winner progressing to the semi-finals.
He added: "We have the advantage, but we must forget our lead. They are the reigning champions and we have to respect that. We have to be humble and down to earth.
"We need to enter the game as if we were level and make it the game of our lives."
