VIDEO: Ex-Manchester United Man Anderson Is Sent Off As His Bad Luck Continues In Brazil

VIDEO: Ex-Manchester United Man Anderson Is Sent Off As His Bad Luck Continues In Brazil

Former Manchester United midfielder Anderson had another weekend to forget as his torrid time in Brazil continues.

The 28-year-old – who moved to Internacional from United in the January transfer window – hasn’t had the best of lucky since making the switch back to South America.

During Sunday night’s 3-1 defeat to Atletico MG in the Brazilian top flight, Anderson was shown a red card for mouthing off to officials after decision didn’t go his way.

It was another disappointing show which saw him stay on the pitch for just 61 minutes.

You can check out the incident in the video below.

It’s not the first piece of controversy to surround Anderson since he returned to his native Brazil at the start of the year.

In his debut for Internacional against Cruzeiro, he marked the occasion by coming on as a substitute in the second half, only to miss a penalty in the 74th minute.

Anderson followed up that ‘dream debut’ with a difficult night in the Copa Libertadores back in February when, in a match away at Bolivian side The Strongest, the tubby midfielder was given the hook after only 36 minutes of the match.

On that occasion, Anderson suffered from La Paz’s famed altitude sickness, as the city stands at over 3500m above sea level.
