Anderson was a flop for Manchester United and Sir Alex knew it in the first season itself. He was supposed to be a replacement for the aging Paul Scholes but is only a vestigial team member in Manchester United. Among all the senior players in the United squad, probably it is Anderson who has the minimum starts in all season. Only Owen Hargreaves might have had fewer starts than him in his very very short career. So it is really necessary for Anderson to get his acts together and search for greener pastures if he wants to revive his career in any way.
