As FC Porto prepare to face Farense in the Portuguese League tonight, the game is seen as an important challenge for West Ham loanee Felipe Anderson.
Newspaper A Bola brings a story saying these are ‘decisive days’ for the midfielder’s stay with the Dragons, as he’s still proving his value at the club.
Following a poor start to the season, the outlet writes that the Brazilian ‘refused the early conviction that he’d have no future’ at Porto and now works to show his potential.
Felipe Anderson had a positive performance against Sporting last week, despite the Dragons’ loss, and is now expected to show the same in the last games of the month to prove he deserves to continue at the club.
For the past few months, the Portuguese media continued repeating that the player would be sent back to West Ham as he wasn’t even being taken to the bench in most of Porto’s games. That’s why he was linked to clubs from England and Italy this month.
Now with this new chance tonight, perhaps he can finish these rumours for good and have a good end of season with Porto, scheduling his move back to West Ham only for the summer.
