Felipe Anderson Admits Physical Adaption Has Been Tough at West Ham
West Ham winger Felipe Anderson admits that he has found adapting to the physical demands of the Premier League tough going at times.
The Brazilian lit up the London Stadium on Saturday with two goals in the Irons’ 4-2 win over Burnley. But Anderson says he has not found the transition from Lazio and Serie A easy.
“The Premier League is really hard, really strong and everybody is really strong,” Anderson told the club’s website.
“I had to adapt and my team-mates always told me they had faith in me regardless if I played well or badly, and that has been really important for my adaptation and to be able to show my game.”
Anderson was delighted with the resilience his side showed, having twice been pegged back by the Clarets at 1-0 and 2-1.
“At 1-1 we believed we could win it, I scored and they equalised again and for some seconds we couldn’t believe it,” added Anderson.
“But we are a team that fights until the very end, that believe in themselves and that helped us stay in the game. It’s better to work with a win, we have confidence and we want to get more.”
