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.

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.
