West Ham United defender Aaron Cresswell has spoken highly of his teammate Felipe Anderson to the club’s official website.

Cresswell - who earns £50,000 per week as salary, according to Spotrac.com, and joined West Ham in the summer of 2014 when Sam Allardyce was the manager of the London club - was impressed with Anderson’s performance in the Hammers’ 4-2 victory over Burnley at home in the Premier League last weekend.

The 25-year-old Brazil international attacking midfielder scored twice for Manuel Pellegrini’s side at the London Stadium last weekend.

 

West Ham left-back Cresswell has been impressed with the Brazilian, and the 28-year-old England international seems to have suggested that the summer signing from Lazio works hard in training.

Cresswell told West Ham’s official website about Anderson: “A lot of people won’t see Felipe Monday to Friday and what he does in training.

“Especially coming from Brazil and coming from a totally different league in Serie A, it definitely takes some time to adapt.

“With the money in the game these days, when you come with a certain price tag, you don’t get that time, but on Saturday he was fantastic, both providing and scoring goals, and hopefully that can continue.”
