It has not been a great season for Manchester United flop Anderson and it has just got worse after he was branded as the least intelligent teammate of a former Old Trafford star - so now he's the fat AND dumb one.
One Unlucky Man
That's right, Champions League winner Wes Brown was doing a video interview with his current club Sunderland and was asked a series of questions that threw up various interesting answers - like choosing Ryan Giggs over Cristiano Ronaldo as the best player he ever played with.
when I was with him, he was there for probably five or six years, and I honestly still don't think he can speak English
Ronaldo got labelled the fastest he ever shared a dressing room with, closely followed by Nani, and the £80million Real Madrid superstar was also given with the 'most skilful' crown, but it was the OLd Trafford youth graduate's answer of the 'least intelligent' question.
"Anderson just because when I was with him, he was there for probably five or six years, and I honestly still don't think he can speak English," says the centre-back.
It has been seven years since the Brazilian moved to Manchester United from Porto and he has had a torrid enough time dealing with weight issues, which have gone so far as some people claiming his career with the Red Devils was all but up a couple of years ago due to a love of, amongst other less than nutritious foodstuffs, crisps.
- Anderson is arguably Manchester United's worst ever signing
- Anderson open to leaving Manchester United
- David Moyes should sign Anderson
So now the 26-year-old has got this stupid label to handle along with the timber problem, all in a season where it looks as though his whole European adventure is ended after being phased out of things by his new manager Louis van Gaal.
Recent reports have suggested that he is so far away from Van Gaal's plans that Manchester United are prepared to forfeit as much as £1.4million in January and let him leave on a free transfer. This week he was linked with a return to his boyhood club Gremio, in his homeland of Brazil.
However, there may be one bit of information saving the substantial midfielder, as Wes Brown's fear of repercussions from his present teammates meant he only considered players from former club Manchester United.
"I'm not going to say anyone in here [at Sunderland] because that could get back," was the beginning of his response to the question, which you can watch below.
The Black Cats defender could also be open to some criticism of his mental capacities, especially after his awful blunder in the defeat to Arsenal where he basically played a through-ball to Gunners forward Alexis Sanchez.
