Felipe Anderson reveals his squad number
Felipe Anderson will wear the No8 shirt for West Ham United.
The Hammers midfielder has picked the squad number after moving to London Stadium from Italian club Lazio in a Club record transfer last month.
Felipe Anderson revealed that the No8 holds special memories to him, having worn it as a youngster back in Brazil.
He explained: “Number eight is special to me because when I was a young player in the Academy at Santos, I wore either the number eight or the number ten shirt.
“I wore the number ten in the first team for Santos, but obviously Manuel Lanzini already has this number here so it is not available
“I am happy to wear the number eight and look forward to wearing it for West Ham in the Premier League.”
Hammers fans could get their first glimpse of Felipe Anderson in the No8 shirt at London Stadium when they take on Bournemouth on Saturday 18 August. Tickets are now on General Sale - click here to buy now.
