Football News

Manchester United flop Anderson finally left Old Trafford in the January transfer window, heading back to his homeland Brazil with Internacional.

The flamboyant midfielder, who was signed by Sir Alex Ferguson, failed to make the cut at United after struggling with injury and fitness issues along the way.

Fans of his may have been hoping that the 26-year-old could rejuvenate his career back in Brazil but that does not look like happening anytime soon.

Penalty problems 

On his debut last week, coming on as a sub with just 15 minutes left, Anderson missed an all-important spot kick.

Anderson has now faced further embarrassment by being subbed off after just 36 minutes into his latest appearance for his new side, heading straight for the oxygen bottle.


Although the game was played at an elevation of 11,75 ft above sea level against The Strongest in the Bolivian capital of La Paz, there is no way a professional football player should be failing to deal with these conditions.

Anderson is yet again haunted by fitness problems. To make matters worse, Internacional lost the Copa Libertadores match 3-1.

Fans of Anderson: Will he ever find his best form again? Have your say in the comments section below!
