First Team News Transfers

Manchester United's Anderson admits he is not unhappy but will leave if not played

Manchester United midfielder Anderson has come out in a recent interview to state that he is happy at United playing the waiting game for a first-team place, but admits he needs to start playing, else a future away from Old Trafford would be the only option.

Anderson moved to United from FC Porto back in 2007, winning both the Champions League and Barclays Premier League in his first season. So far during the 2013/14 season, he has made just five appearances, with his last start against West Brom, which ended in defeat at Old Trafford.

Carrick and Jones are out of this weekend’s clash with Cardiff City, which Gambling Sites have Manchester United as firm favourites to take all three-points. Anderson could be in line for a squad selection place with both Carrick and Jones injured.

The latest rumours around Old Trafford were that the club were ready to strike a loan deal to Fulham in January, but with 18-months left on his current contract with the Premier League Champions, he is not ready to give up on his United career just yet.


Speaking with the Manchester Evening News, the Brazilian midfielder said:

“Every single player wants to play every game, I am the same as all the rest.

“I need to play. I am 25 and cannot stay one more year and not play. But you cannot demand that.

“I am not unhappy. You have to be patient and when you do get your chance, you have to do well.”

Despite being out of favour for a first team place at Manchester United, he insists that there is no issue with new manager David Moyes.

He added:

“It is good with the new manager

“He’s new and it is completely different.

“I have not spoken to him about my situation. We just have to help him be successful.”
