Since Anderson signed for Manchester United in 2007 he hasn’t lived up to the fans’ expectations. Whether that was because he couldn’t get the playing time, he was trying to adapt to the Premier League or just needed to improve isn’t quite certain. Most probable is that it was a bit of all three. However this season has proved to be a revelation for the Brazilian.

It is a real shame for United that he is now injured.
