'Will miss you', 'Good luck': Some West Ham fans react as ace confirms departure with Twitter post
West Ham attacker Felipe Anderson has confirmed that he has completed a move to former side Lazio.
The Brazilian winger posted on his official Twitter account that he had returned to the club he made a name for himself.
As reported by Fabrizio Romano, West Ham will 50% of any future sale should Lazio sell Anderson for a second time.
The Hammers signed Anderson in 2017 for a then club-record fee of £41.5m according to BBC Sport. However, the Brazilian international failed to make much of an impact for the east London side beyond his first season.
Indeed, Anderson spent last season with FC Porto in an attempt to re-find his form that made him such a threat in Italy.
However, the attacker only made ten appearances for the Portuguese giants.
The attacker departs West Ham after four years with the club. However, some supporters were willing to give the forward a nice send-off as he begins a new chapter of his career back in Rome.
Here’s what some West Ham fans had to say about Anderson confirming his move to Lazio on Twitter…
Will miss you so much. Meeting you a month after your record breaking transfer to us was an incredible moment for me. Wish you the best going forward ⚒ pic.twitter.com/9TO2QYuN96— Hammers Thru & Thru (@camwestham) July 13, 2021
I can't believe we've let another player go, and no talk of anyone coming in. Seasons nowhere near starting and I'm really not looking forward to it.— . (@Crouchboy) July 13, 2021
All the best at Lazio Felipe!
