Man U bust up

Manchester United midfielder Anderson has been told he can quit Old Trafford after a furious bust-up with Sir Alex Ferguson.

The Brazilian star left Fergie fuming after reacting badly to his failure to make the starting line-up for the Community Shield defeat by Chelsea.

The Scot was so angry he later confronted Anderson over his actions and was stunned by the 21-year-old’s refusal to back down.

Anderson insisted he was good enough to be in the team and was frustrated at being overlooked, with rookie Darron Gibson taking his place in the squad.

And with the Brazilian international claiming he would prefer to quit rather than sit on the sidelines, Ferguson is willing to grant him his wish.

Anderson’s flare-up has seen him barely feature this season. He played 59 minutes stuck out on the left wing in the defeat at Burnley and hardly made an impact.

He didn’t even make the bench for the 5-0 win over Wigan, with Gibson being handed the job of shoring up the centre of midfield when Paul Scholes tired.

The row is a major blow to Ferguson who hoped the former Porto star would mature into a key player this season.

But having seen his close pal Cristiano Ronaldo leave for Real Madrid in the summer, Anderson could soon be following him out of the Old Trafford door.

United paid nearly £18m for Anderson in May 2007 after Ferguson’s scouts told him the midfielder was one of the best prospects around.

He fired one of the shoot-out penalties in the 2008 Champions League final win over Chelsea after coming on as a sub, and started the defeat by Barcelona in last season’s competition, but he now faces an uncertain future.

Sir Alex really had a swing and miss on the signings of Anderson/Nani. They were supposed to be the next big thing, and I suppose Anderson was decent for awhile, but I've never felt Nani was anything special most of the time.

Sir Furious's empire is starting to crumble, he should have left at the end of last season. Think this is one campaign too many.

Some people really do come out with some shite.

The guy has built the club up. How can it be crumbling? :rolleyes:

all empires collapse and crumble....

Anderson just hasn't done enough to justify getting game time.

The best signing Man Utd could make would be Torres! I can't see it happening, but stranger things have happened. Liverpool need the money and Benitez is on a shoogly peg so early in the season.

Manchester United has always been there.

I beg to differ when Matt Busby left Man U went to shit for a few years and even got relegated in 1974 with the goal that relegated them being scored by Denis Law who was with Man City of all teams at the time. Prior to Busby Man U were of course pretty good but not always up there dominating. It took Sir Furious a good few years to get Man U back up there too, all I am saying is that perhaps this era of dominance may be coming to an end and when you consider that they are somewhere north of £700m worth of debt, they will not be able to compete with those clubs for whom money is no object and therefore may get knocked off their perch.
