Anderson was bought from Porto FC by Manchester United after showing a string of impressive performances. He was an attacking midfielder who loved to run forward with the ball and pass it to his teammates. However, what he lacked was the level of fitness that you need to survive in the English Premier League, and injuries kept plaguing him for the rest of his footballing career. He could have achieved great heights, because he had the pace and stamina, but he lacked consistency. He’d be injured every other week.
