Anderson has had an impressive first season for United, earning praise and respect from the fans incredibly early. His hard working nature, coupled with his great skill, won us over quickly. He has outplayed Steven Gerrard and Cesc Fabregas in our matches against Liverpool and Arsenal, which has earned him our best chant of the season.

Today, Anderson has spoken out in praise of his team mates, claiming their skill, along with their hard work, will see us crowned European Champions next week.

“A team with players like Rooney, Tevez, Ronaldo, Carrick, Scholes and other star players, you don’t need to do much, only work hard,” Anderson said. “That’s something I do and if I have the chance I will try to help my team the best that I can and make the most of the moment. It is a dream for any player to be in a Champions League final and I am no different. When I came to United I already knew they had a very good team with some of the top players in the world. This club is used to winning trophies. That is the most important thing for them. Reaching the Champions League final is another step forward for United. We know how important it is to win this trophy and others in the future.”
