Wilshere Impressed by Felipe Anderson
The form of Brazilian winger Felipe Anderson has not gone unnoticed since he joined West Ham from Lazio this summer, not least by his colleague Jack Wilshere who also joined the East London club in July.
Anderson has scored three goals in his last two matches for the Irons, drawing praise from ex- Gunner Wilshere, “It was difficult for him at the start. He came from Italy and it’s hard in the Premier League week in and week out, no matter who you are playing.
“You’ve got to put your foot in and be ready for the fight, and I think we can see him coming good. Technically, he’s up there. It’s difficult to compare him because he’s a player who can pretty much do everything,” Wilshere told whufc.com.
“He’s got that Brazilian flair and the vision to get his head up to make a pass. He’s showing everyone the talent and skills he has, and he’s added a few goals as well. I think there’s more to come from him and I’m excited to see it.
