Anderson has taken a rest from practising his penalties to praise Sir Alex Ferguson.

“He is the big daddy, especially to the young players,” said Anderson. “He supports them and gives them the maturity needed to achieve things. Above all, he trusts them. Basically he tries to keep everybody happy. He has created a big family I feel comfortable with. We are all good friends. It is why Manchester United is the greatest team in the world.”
