Manchester United flop Anderson's time at Internacional went from bad to worse last night after he was sent off for shoving an opponent. 

However his own misfortune was overshadowed by his team-mate Fabricio, who was shown red for swearing at his own fans.


Anderson penned a four-year contract with Internacional in February after more than seven years with Manchester United. However the change of scenery doesn't appear to have changed his fortunes; he missed a penalty on his debut in Brazil while he was forced from the field in February after just 36 minutes needing oxygen while playing in the high-altitude Estadio Hernando Siles in La Paz.

Now things have got even worse after the former Manchester United midfielder after he was handed his marching orders for on Ypiranga Erechim striker Otacilio Neto, who retaliated by throwing an elbow which earned him a red card too.

Fabricio went one step further when Internacional were booed by their own fans after the 1-1 draw in Porto Alegre. Some of his team-mates offered their apologies to the supporters but Fabricio took exception and swore back in retaliation, earning himself a red card which reduced his side to nine men after 69 minutes.

He didn't stop there however, ripping off his shirt after a confrontation with a team-mate before reportedly shouting 'I'm leaving, I'm leaving' as he exited the pitch. Internacional have already suspended him over the incident.

Do you think Anderson is Manchester United's worst ever transfer?
