According to a report by Record (via Sport Witness), West Ham United attacker Felipe Anderson is soon set to return to east London because he has been so poor during his loan spell at FC Porto – with Hammers fans flooding in reaction to the news as one supporter even brands it ‘amazing’.
The 27-year-old, who was shipped off on a temporary spell to Porto by manager David Moyes at the beginning of the campaign, has started just one Liga NOS match all season whilst amassing just four league appearances (WhoScored).
Over these cameos, he hasn’t completed a single 90 and has featured for only 120 minutes in Portugal’s top flight – with Record (via Sport Witness) reporting Anderson is set to return to West Ham after being a disappointment at the Estádio do Dragão.
News of his impending return from his loan has prompted plenty of mixed reaction from Irons supporters, with one fan even branding it ‘amazing’.
Indeed, some supporters are hopeful he can rediscover his past form for West Ham, like in the 2018/2019 season for example – when he managed 36 Premier League starts, 9 league goals and four assists (WhoScored).
He also completed an impressive 2.1 dribbles per 90, perhaps evidence of his quality when on top form, but whether or not he manages to force his way back in remains to be seen.
While some Hammers fans are optimistic he could still have a future, there are plenty of others with a wide array of verdicts – find all of their best ones down below.
