Former West Ham star Felipe Anderson and teammates get tongue lashing from angry boss Maurizio Sarri for being 'lazy'

West Ham United boss David Moyes deemed that Felipe Anderson did not work hard enough for the team and it seems he’s only the only one.

Moyes bombed Anderson out to Porto on loan last season after he failed to impress the Scot on his return to West Ham.

Anderson endured a torrid time in Portugal, barely getting a kick all season after manager Sergio Conceicao claimed he was brought in against his wishes.

The manager also went on to criticise Anderson’s work ethic as made just one league start and only six appearances in total for the Portuguese runners-up.

He was shipped back to Lazio this summer by taskmaster Moyes who wants to continue to build West Ham around young, hungry and hard-working players.

Anderson scored a penalty in a big win against a part-time team on his first game back with Lazio.

But he – along with his teammates – was on the end of an angry tongue-lashing from new Lazio boss Maurizio Sarri following a 1-1 draw with Serie C side Padova (Football Italia).

According to Football Italia Sarri could be heard berating his players from the touchline, accusing them of not following his instructions.

Another phrase heard clearly from the touchline was Sarri complaining: “We’re always second to the loose ball. Always!” claims Football Italia.

“We’re just walking around in the middle of the pitch.

New club, new manager, new start for Anderson but same old problem?

“We can’t defend like this, we’re just standing there and watching them.”

Some West Ham fans believed it would have been better to keep Anderson and try to get the best out of him ahead of a jam-packed campaign with Europa League football.

But Moyes has worked wonders at West Ham and clearly knows A) what he is doing and B) what he wants.

So if the Scot did not believe Anderson was the right player and character for West Ham then in Moyes we trust.
