Anderson: Praying For Goals With Celebrations Planned

Anderson Manchester United t-shirtAnderson was quick to win the fans over at Old Trafford through his hard working nature and great ability. After bossing some of the best midfield’s in Europe when playing against Liverpool and Arsenal, he has filled us with great hope of what he will achieve in the future.

However, despite having several powerful shots on target this season, he’s yet to find the back of the net, something Anderson told United Review was getting on his nerves.

He also revealed that he loves hearing the fans sing his name, and that the players sing each others’ chants as a laugh.

Are you pleased to have avoided Liverpool in the Champions League draw and how much are you looking forward to facing Roma again?

To be honest I didn’t really have a preference as to who we were drawn with in the quarter-finals because at this stage of the competition every game is a tough one, no matter who you play. It’ll be a little strange to play Roma again so soon after the group matches, but I’m really looking forward to the tie. We all want to win the trophy and we know we’ll have to fight very hard to do that. But we have a great chance.

Aside from helping the team win trophies, presumably you’re looking to add goals to your game sometime soon…
I’m literally praying for goals [laughs]! I’m hopeful that when I start scoring I will score some important goals in important games. I’ve certainly got some good celebrations planned!

The fixture schedule is going to be very busy between now and the end of the season – are you looking forward to the challenge?
It’s a beautiful thing to be involved in a finale to a season such as this one. We’re in a good position in the Premier League and the Champions League and we are focused on winning both trophies. Do I get nervous? [Puts on his sunglasses and reclines in his chair, grinning] No, never. I’m always happy! And I hope I will be even happier come the end of the season.

    Anderson has been much, much better than promised – and he was said to be a real gem.

    Fergy said that he signed Anderson because he was afraid that if the kid was able to play for an injury-free season then his price would double. How right ! UTD got him on the cheap.

    I expect Anderson/Possebon to be the favoured combination in a couple of years. Possebon looks fantastic, poised, and accomplished – a lot like Michael Carrick but with a much, much higher ceiling. And we know that the sky’s the limit for Anderson. Happy days for our club.
