Anderson's Dream Has Come True

Anderson's Dream Has Come True

Porto starlet Anderson described his proposed move to Old Trafford as a dream.

To be honest, I don't like the trend of modern players claiming they've always been supporting the club they sign for. These claims have somehow lost their credibility in my eyes.

But of course I do not wish to be suspicious about the comments of Anderson whose arrival is one of the major shocks of this summer.

'I cannot wait to play in the same team as Cristiano Ronaldo, who is a great player, as well as Wayne Rooney and many more,' he said.

'I could not imagine I would ever get to work with a manager like Sir Alex Ferguson but it has happened. What can I say? It is a dream the size of the world.'

'Ever since I was a boy I always wanted to play for Manchester United and now that dream has come true. I am very happy.'

I'm perfectly ready to believe he cannot wait to play with Roooney and Ronaldo and to work under Fergie. But is that true he's always been dreaming about Manchester United? I'm not so sure.

Of course it's possible. But what I want to say is that vast numbers of new signings declare undying love for their new club and surely not all of them are genuine fans. It's not important for me that a new player says he's been a lifelong supporter. I expect them to give all to the club and understand the importance of playing here. If he does that I don't give a damn about who he had supported as a child.

genuinly shocked at andersons signing, but in a good way. the rumours of nani and hargreaves led to suspected arrivals but anderson was totally out of the blue. i cant wait for next season, as with ronaldo, rooney, nani and anderson imagine how many skillful playes we will have, these two signings are VERY promising.(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1eZAcIR1QmI)

We1ll be oozing quality if they click. It looks as though no need to worry about either Arsenal or Liverpool next season.

rooneyisgod: It's certainly true United are popular in Brazil. As Kaká has said recently, they reckon we are the English team that plays like Brazil.

I prefer United to sign young players who are not the finished article yet. They adopt our system and philosophy easier so I'd choose Anderson over Kaka though the latter is obviously a superior player at the moment.
