“I Have The Quality To Play In The Position Of Paul Scholes”

By on July 19, 2011

Brazilian midfielder Anderson has told Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson to save his money and back him.

Fergie has already gone on record to say the Champions are looking to replace Paul Scholes with speculation suggesting Wesley Sneijder is on his way to Old Trafford. However Anderson thinks there is no need:

“I think I’m already there,” he told ManUtd.com. “I’ve played well for Manchester United in the past and I’m confident I have the quality to play in the position of Paul Scholes”.

Anderson was quick to praise his former team-mate but believes he learnt a lot from the former England international.

“He was an unbelievable player – of course I understand that – but I think I’ve learnt a lot from him. I think of him like my teacher. He’s helped me a lot.”

      I think you’ve hit the nail on the head. ‘Used to do’. Scholes used to be a completely different player, not to mention a Saturday regular starter, so if that’s what we are missing, it doesn’t seem to be a great loss because we’ve coped for the last 5 years or so. No?

    Anderson’s true position is AMF. The lad has had a lot of serious injuries hindering his progress, but those last few games last season, Anderson seemed to be adding goals to his all round play, and if he keeps that up he will do more than be good for us. Come on Anderson lad – you got my backing. United need to buy a strong box to box defensive MF, and that’s a fact!

    He played well towards the end of the season. He should b given a good run of games.
    I can’t c us signing sneijder. I think fergie wanted modric.
