Former-Manchester United defender Wes Brown has described current Old Trafford midfielder Anderson as the least intelligent teammate he's ever had.

Speaking to Sunderland's official YouTube channel as reported by the Daily Mirror, Brown picked out Anderson when asked in a quick-fire round who was the stupidest teammate he's ever played alongside.

Brown revealed that Anderson, who signed for Manchester United from Porto seven years ago, still cannot speak English.

He may not be at Old Trafford for much longer though, as reports claim the Brazilian playmaker could be set to return to his homeland with Gremio interested.

It's even been suggested that Louis van Gaal is happy for Anderson to leave the club for nothing when the transfer window reopens in January. Still just 26, Anderson was regarded as one of the best young talents in European football when Manchester United won the race to sign him in 2007.

Porto claimed the transfer fee was £20m at the time, although United did not disclose the figure. Needless to say though, the move has not worked out.

Anderson has made 181 appearances for the Old Trafford club since his arrival, and has played under three managers - Sir Alex Ferguson, David Moyes and van Gaal.

Out of favour

But he's fallen out of favour in recent years and spent a part of last season on loan with Italian side Fiorentina. A return to Gremio, where he started his career, would offer Anderson the opportunity to restart.

Further on in the video Brown goes on to reveal the best player he's played with (Ryan Giggs), the worst dressed teammate he's ever had (Billy Jones) and the biggest joker (Quinton Fortune).
