Anderson Proud Of Dinho Comparison

Anderson Proud Of Dinho Comparison

Anderson, signed from Porto in May, insists he's still got a long way to go before he would deserve to be compared to Ronaldinho.

Of course he does not envy the looks of Barcelona's genius but probably his World Cup winner's medal and Champions League trophy...

'I feel very proud by those comparisons but you have to remember that Ronaldinho is an established top class footballer who has been named the best player in the world twice,' the official website quotes him.

'He`s a great guy and a good friend of mine, but no two players are the same - Ronaldinho is Ronaldinho and Anderson is Anderson.

'It`s an honour to play alongside him, it`s something every footballer in the world would like to do. He`s a great player and I hope one day I can reach the level he is at now.'


Well, Anderson likes to drift in from the left, he's lightning fast, skilled and happy to play so he seems to be worthy of the comparisons - hopefully he'll prove it.

He also revealed that Cristiano Ronaldo's influence had played a major part in his move. I think we had guessed that.

'I`m good friends with Cristiano and he told me about the club and what a great place it is,' he told ManUtd.com. 'Joining United is a dream come true for any footballer in the world. I`m really excited to be here and hope I can do well.

'I heard about it some time ago through my agent but we thought it would be better for me to wait a little bit longer.

'I was doing well at Porto at the time and I knew that joining a club like United - one of the biggest clubs in the world with one of the best followings in the world - would bring its own pressure.

'But when they expressed an interest in me again in the summer I felt it was the right time and I was really excited to have the opportunity to play for such a great club.


The usual words, of course... But he also admitted that the original plan had been to leave him at Porto for another season to learn - just as Sir Alex said that we had bought him because of other clubs' interest.

The thing about pressure... that's the most difficult part, dear Anderson. I think he'll deal with it because I'm an optimist!
