Crunch time for Anderson at Old Trafford

Published Add your comment

Manchester United midfielder Anderson has admitted he is facing an Old Trafford crossroads.

Four years ago, the Brazilian was preparing for Olympic duty and collected a bronze medal in Beijing. It marked the start of a second impressive season with United but within 18 months his career had taken a sharp downturn. He was fined for returning home without his manager's permission and in February 2010 suffered a cruciate injury.

"The last two years have been very difficult," he said. "No-one wants a player who has a lot of injuries. But I am still young. I am only 24. And I believe I can get through this. All summer I stayed in Europe to work on my knee. Now I am 100%. I don't have any more injuries. I don't have a problem."
