Anderson has been suffering from injury problems. He has injured his knee on 2nd of November 2011. The match was against Otelul Galati, in which he has suffered this injury.
Two years ago this particular Brazilian mid fielder has undergone a severe operation. The player went for this operation forcefully. He was suffering from certain ligament problems. The treatment was done in Portugal and it was quite successful. After this treatment the cruciate ligament damage was healed and slowly Anderson came back to the field in proper form.
During the match of 2nd November, initially it looked to be a minor injury. Even Sir Alex Ferguson said that he thought that it was a mere injury and Anderson will recover it before the next match. But later it seemed that the injury turned to a severe one. Soon, the mid fielder was sent to Portugal where he went for treatment two years back. The doctors said that this time no surgery was required but also added that he cannot enter the field before the end of February 2012.
On the other hand Sir Alex does not have his secondary mid fielder Tom Cleverly. Tom is also out of the field as he is suffering from an ankle injury. So now it’s a big question about who will play in the mid field position for the ManUnited.
Anderson in a recent interview said that he is slowly recovering from the injury problem and is quite happy to be present in the first practice session. He has assured the Man United fans that, soon he will be seen on the field. Even Sir Alex and his team mates want Anderson to join them on the field very soon. Sources have said that he will be joining the field after he passes the fitness test later this month.
