Anderson Pays Tribute to Sir Alex Ferguson on Manchester United Departure

Anderson Pays Tribute to Sir Alex Ferguson on Manchester United Departure

Anderson has paid tribute to Sir Alex Ferguson after he ended a seven-and-a-half-year spell with Manchester United yesterday.

The Brazilian midfielder – famed for doing very little at Old Trafford – has signed a four-year contract with Internacional in his homeland.

Fergie took Anderson from Porto in 2007 for £26million and much was expected of the creative midfielder.

He played semi-regularly at the start of his time in England, but struggled for form and fitness after that – making just 10 appearances in all competitions over the last two seasons.

But despite that, the United fans continued to back him as he helped the team to four Premier League trophies and one Champions League title.

And he took to Instagram last night to heap praise on Ferguson – who he enjoyed the majority of his United career with.

He wrote:

Words can’t express how grateful I am to have worked with the best manager in the world…Alex Ferguson. Always supported me throughout my career and taught me so much, I will always admire the dedication you had to the sport, true inspiration…. thanks you

United fans – how will you remember Anderson’s time at Old Trafford? Let us know in the comments below.
