The Brazil winger is delighted to work for Manuel Pellegrini and believes the Chilean coach can get the best out of him. “Everyone knows that when you have got that title of club-record signing you’re expected to do something different, to do big things,” he told The Daily Mail.
“There is a lot of belief in you. I think it is more about the trust of the club. The club trusts me to perform. “It’s not as much pressure. They are trusting me to play my game. One hundred per cent. I always followed the Premier League. It’s a quick game with very strong players. Speed is one of my characteristics.”
He added: “This was where I wanted to be. I felt ready to come to West Ham. Now I feel ready to take on these challenges and do something great here. “What I was really looking for was for a project and a team that believed in me 100 per cent.
“That’s what I found with West Ham. The coach always supported me and still supports me. When I found out it was West Ham who had an interest in me, it was an easy decision.”
