It looks like footballers are doing everything they can to stay in shape while the 2019/20 campaign has come to a pause; and in Felipe Anderson’s case, that involves training with his dog.
A video has emerged on West Ham’s twitter page that shows the 26-year-old involved in a series of football-based activities to maintain sharpness, fitness levels and overall physical capabilities.
With COVID-19 becoming a widespread issue, players are training from their homes in preparation for the resumption of the 2019/20 campaign, or failing that, the following season.
Anderson has failed to make an impression on the Hammers faithful so far this season – netting just once and registering four assists in 22 Premier League appearances – and was recently pushed out of the starting XI by Pablo Fornals and Jarrod Bowen’s impressive performances.
But there was a notable participator in the video – Anderson’s dog – and West Ham fans have responded in hilarious fashion…
Can that dog play left back ?
