Rivaldo is confident Felipe Anderson will prove himself at West Ham.
Betfair Ambassador Rivaldo believes he has what it takes to be successful in English football, and has backed him to use the Hammers as a stepping stone to bigger things.
The 2002 World Cup winner told the Daily Star: “He is a nice player, capable of adapting to English football. Yes, he will face some difficulties such as the physical demands of the league.
“But when you're talented and professional you could prove your value and I believe he will succeed.
“West Ham is not a top team in England but is a reasonable club where he can improve, and show his quality as a player in order to make another jump in the future, perhaps to a bigger English club."
