The midfielder of Manchester United, Anderson Luis de Abreu Oliveira, has denied the reports that he doesn’t want to continue playing for the Red Devils.
Manchester United had bought Anderson in May 2007 from Porto after paying a huge transfer fee of 20 million Pounds. But, the Brazilian hasn’t yet managed to prove his worth. He has been in United camp since the last five and half years, but, he is still not a regular member of United’s starting XI. He has got starting opportunity in only 12 matches in this season.
There have been speculations that because of getting lesser starting opportunities at United, Anderson wants to leave the club. But, Anderson has denied all those reports and has said that he has never thought of leaving United.
Anderson was included in the starting line up of the Red Devils for the recently played FA Cup match against Reading. Talking to the reporters after that match, Anderson said, “The reports about me being unhappy at the club are false. Everybody knows that I have no problem at the club. I am absolutely fine here.”
“I haven’t been in the best of forms in this season, but, I have gone through worse times than this in the past. So, I am not that much worried.”
When asked about him getting limited starting opportunities in the ongoing season, Anderson said, “It happens when you play for a big club like Manchester United. There are so many quality players in our camp. So, if somebody is out of form, obviously, he would sit on the bench. I don’t take it personally. If somebody is in better form than me, he must be preferred ahead of me.”
Anderson has featured for the Red Devils in 164 matches so far and has managed to score only 9 goals.
