Manchester United midfielder Anderson has revealed that he has no desire to leave the club, despite not being in the starting eleven very often.
The Brazilian enjoys the privilege of playing with legends like Paul Scholes and the injuries will not forve him to leave United.
“It is not true,” he says. “Everyone knows I am happy at the club. I have had a lot of injuries but I have never let the smile go from my face. I try to help the team all the time. This is me. When I want to leave, I will have to talk to the boss first. I don’t have any issues.
“It is not easy to play for Manchester United. A lot of top players came here and couldn’t do it – [Juan Sebastian] Veron – some big players. Kleberson came here and didn’t play. I have stayed for six years.
“The only places you could go to from here are Real Madrid and Barcelona. You can’t have another choice. The level at Manchester United is so big and so massive. You come here and you are definitely going to win titles. I have won the [Barclays] Premier League three times.
I have won the Champions League once and lost two finals. I have always been there.”
Anderson admits that his injuries have made things difficult, but he will not leave the club because of it.
“I have been good,” he told PA Sport. “I have won the Champions League and I have won the Premier League. I play some games.
“I came here when I was very young. I came from Porto and there were people like Paul Scholes and other big players. It was hard but I did very well in my first year.
“In the second, I played some games and missed some, then I have had big injuries. But I have always been here when the boys have needed me.”
