West Ham United attacker Felipe Anderson has revealed that he was inspired by some of the club’sfavourites including Carlos Tevez before making the summer switch. The Brazil international became the Hammers’ record signing from Lazio during the summer and he has since been ever-present for the Premier League duties.
Speaking to ESPN, Anderson said: “Since I was a kid I knew that [the Premier League] was the most important championship. Then when I started playing all the players said that it was the best, the most difficult, the most competitive. I wanted to come here to be among the best. I was following Tevez, Mascherano... I also followed Di Canio who played here a long time ago. I always followed the English championship a lot so when they told me about the possibility of coming here I did not think twice.”
