Manchester United sign Anderson on New Deal
Manchester United midfielder Anderson has signed a new contract which will keep him at Old Trafford until 2015. The Brazilian had been quite a disappointment since his £17 million move to United in 2007 from FC Porto, as he struggled to find form or fitness – which cost him a regular first team place. However, after playing a couple of games in the first team, filling in for Paul Scholes and proving his qualities with some fine performances and a rare goal to his name, he has earned himself the new deal.
The 22 year-old, who had been linked to moves away from United said he is delighted with the contract renewal, as he told the clubs official website:
“This is the best club to be at and I would like to thank everyone for the great support I have received over the years”
“I am looking forward to winning many more trophies with this club and I am so pleased to have signed a new contract.”
His manager was equally as happy, saying that Anderson “has fantastic potential” and is “going to be a really top player” for the club. The player scored his first goal at Old Trafford against Valencia last week – doubling his overall goal tally or United, and the signs of improvement are clear to see. He is much more comfortable with his position, laying further forward seems to be a strong point, but his physicality and passion are still as strong as when he first joined as a teenager.
Things seem to be going United’s way at the moment – top of the League with a game in hand after toppling title challengers Arsenal and they stand in the proud position of being the only unbeaten side in England. A shaky Chelsea team in next up for the Red Devils, and Anderson will be hoping to earn his money and play a big part in pushing the Blues of the edge in what looks like will be a thrilling game.
