Anderson says goodbye to Man United fans

by Ben Topliss

Anderson has taken to social media to say his goodbye to Manchester United fans following his move to Brazilian side Internacional.

Many United fans will be glad to see the back of the Brazilian but he took to social media to thank them for their support regardless.

He said: “Thank you so much to Manchester United. It is truly the best club in the world, I love it so much and have enjoyed every year I have spent there.

“Thank you to all the team who work at United and especially all the boys, I have made some amazing friends, all of whom are great players and will continue to do great things.

“And one massive thank you to all of the fans for your continuous love… The best!”

The 26-year-old signed a four-year deal with Internacional earlier today which put an end to his eight year association with Man United.

The midfielder was often the butt of jokes towards the end of his career at Old Trafford but he had initially shown promise during an encouraging debut season.

This soon gave way thanks to injuries, loss of form and a lack of motivation which contributed to a substantial drop in Anderson’s performance levels.

Anderson clearly had promise but simply did not have the attitude required to succeed at Man United.

It is a shame given that he was a popular figure in the dressing room but his spell at the club will be one that United fans will want to forget.
