Felipe Anderson ‘Didn’t Think Twice’ About West Ham Move
Brazilian winger Felipe Anderson said he ‘didn’t think twice’ when it became clear that Wrst Ham United wanted to sign him from Lazio. Felipe joined the Irons in a deal worth around £42m last week.
The 25 year old wanted to play in the Premier League and he said the offer from West Ham was too good to turn down, “My agent Juliano and my brother, who work together, told me about the opportunity to come here to West Ham.
“I didn’t think twice about it, I said I really wanted to come, and it happened. I was only 20 when I moved to Italy and I thought the league there could teach me a lot. I’d always followed both the English and Italian leagues as a kid, and I really wanted to go there.
“I always dreamed of playing in the Premier League, and thanks to God this dream has come true today. One of the aspects of the Premier League that attracted me most was the pace the games are played at, as well as the strength of all the players, so this made me want to come here.”
