United have signed Brazilian Anderson from Porto - and the youngster admitted his favourite position is not the striker's or the left winger's.
Anderson is remarkably skilled, pacy and capable of playing delightful football. His strong left foot means we could play him on the wing but he could be useful up front or in the midfield, too. Not that this list includes his favourite position though.
'I like being in the middle behind the striker, but I can play in different systems - it all depends on the coach's plans,' he told the News of the World.
'But my favourite position is left-back in a 4-4-2 formation, the position of Roberto Carlos, and I've already played there for Brazil.'
Well, that's clear. Left-back position is not covered satisfactorily at United, seeing we have only four players who are capable of playing there so Anderson will surely get his chance to follow the footsteps of Roberto Carlos.
He aims to become best of the world: even at the tender age of 19 it has much more reality than playing at left-back for United.
'I was considered the best player in the world at Under 17 level and now I want to be the best at Under 20.
'Who knows what could happen afterwards? I could be the best when I arrive to the senior Brazil team.'
Ambition fuels the engine of a remarkable young man. Hopefully his gifts will be among the driving forces behind United's success for years to come.
By the way, stay tuned as Vital United will present an analysis of each of our new signings soon!
