Sergio Conceicao has suggested that Felipe Anderson must work harder, when speaking to DESPORTO AO MINUTO, as the West Ham loanee continues to struggle in Portugal. And some Hammers fans have reacted on Twitter to the Porto manager’s comments.
The 27-year-old left the London Stadium to link up with Porto on loan earlier this month.
He clearly wasn’t fancied by West Ham boss David Moyes. So a move away from east London was much needed.
But Anderson has made a difficult start to life in Portugal.
The 27-year-old has made just one appearance for Porto from a possible four games – a 31 minute cameo from the bench. He has been an unused substitute for the Portuguese outfit’s last three games.
And Porto boss Sergio Conceicao warned Anderson that he must work harder, when speaking to DESPORTO AO MINUTO:
“Felipe knows that in order to return to having brilliant moments as he had [so far in his career], it is necessary to work hard. Anything he does now [at Porto] can have great positive results in the future. And everything that has already happened [in his career] no longer matters, it stays in the bank. The important thing is what he will do at FC Porto.”
Many West Ham fans accused Anderson of being lazy during his time at the London Stadium. Not all of us of course, but there were plenty who held that opinion.
The 27-year-old really needs to show what he is all about during his time with Porto. Because if he doesn’t he could end up on the footballing scrapheap.
Some Hammers fans took to Twitter in response to Sergio Conceicao’s comments on the Brazilian:
GSB probably sent him to Porto to get games, sticking him in champions league window and increase his already falling value. Working out well I see 🤣🤣⚒️

And some of our fans say he’s a confidence player….turns out he thinks he’s better than he actually is, reminds me when Gary Neville said Arnautovic thinks he’s Ronaldo 🤣🤣🤣

That’s exactly his problem, his work rate must improve otherwise he has no chance at getting a place at West Ham.
