United midfielder happy to fight for place
Anderson insists he does not want to leave Manchester United, despite reportedly incurring the wrath of manager Sir Alex Ferguson.
The Brazilian is believed to have vented his frustration at missing out on a Wembley appearance after being left out of the Red Devils’ starting XI that played Chelsea in the Community Shield. Anderson’s attitude did not go down well and the 21-year-old has played in just one of United’s three Premier League matches since talks with Ferguson. Despite question marks lingering over the former Porto midfielder’s future at Old Trafford, he insists he wants to stay and that he now knows who the boss is.
“I believed that I would play in the Community Shield but that is forgotten now,” he said. “I thought that, without Cristiano Ronaldo around, I could to play more and that has been my challenge from pre-season onwards. “But the coach decides the teams and to discuss this with him is foolish because he is the chief. I do not want to leave United. No. “Sir Alex Ferguson has demanded a bigger effort from me and I accept that. Because to get into this United team is very complicated and difficult for any player.”
