Brazilian midfielder Anderson has expressed his fears over what will happen with United when Sir Alex Ferguson will retire.
Sir Alex Ferguson, 70, has played a great role in making Manchester United one of the English giants. He had taken charge of United in 1986 and has been tirelessly working for it since then.
It is greatly understood that Sir Alex will not continue with United for a lot of years and is likely to retire in two years or so. However Anderson believes that it will affect the club greatly.
“Manchester United is Alex Ferguson,” the midfielder told Grande Área television in Portugal. “When he leaves, the club will lose 30-40% – so much depends on him.
“He is a father to all the players, a very respected person and when he retires the football world will really feel his loss.
“He always helped me, and I have a great affection for him. He lives for training and always wants to know how his players and their families are.”
Anderson has scored one goal and made three appearances for United this season.
