I couldn`t help noticing, last week; that the name of Anderson seemed to be cropping up with some regularity in the transfer gossip columns.

It was almost as if it had started to become universally accepted that he`d be leaving Old Trafford sooner rather than later.

On Saturday, Dimitar Berbatov received most of the plaudits for his five-goal performance; however, it`s noticeable, flicking through the tabloid press this morning, that Anderson`s contribution was also highly rated.

Sir Alex Ferguson, talking to the press (but not the BBC), had this to say about the Portuguese midfielder,

“He had a virus for a good spell and then a little injury.”

“He`s been back training for 10 days now and, well, you saw him today. He`s a marvelous footballer. His enthusiasm to play the game is always there.”


Whilst his partner, in the centre of the park, Michael Carrick was equally as vociferous, commenting,

“He was terrific again.”

“Considering it was his first game back, his runs from midfield and his passes from midfield created problems for them all day long and it`s good to see him back.”


Let`s hope Anderson can stay free of injury and continue to show us what he can do!
