Brazilian midfielder Anderson, who completed a loan move from Manchester United to Fiorentina last month, has reacted with shock to reports claiming he believes other players want to leave Old Trafford.
The 25-year-old was quoted as saying at a recent press conference that “lots of players want out”, including Portuguese winger Nani.
However, Anderson has hit back strongly on Instagram, writing: "I'm shocked and surprised with a supposed interview that never existed.
"I never gave any interview, much less to say bad things about a club that I love, a club where I grew up and that gave me so much. Shame on you!!!!
"I'm like a fan and love the club.
The South American then posted a photograph of Manchester United’s title-winning celebrations from last year to hammer the point home that he bears no grudges towards the club.
Anderson is not expected to return to Old Trafford after United boss David Moyes handed his No. 8 squad number to the club’s £37.1m club-record signing Juan Mata, who joined the Premier League champions from Chelsea last month.
However, from the same press conference, Anderson stated that he was very happy at Fiorentina and looking forward to his future with the Serie A outfit.
