Anderson: Few United chances under David Moyes

Anderson: Few United chances under David Moyes

Anderson joined Fiorentina on loan during the January transfer window after starting just two Premier League games for United this season.

The 25-year-old does not believe he was given enough opportunities to impress at Old Trafford over the past few months, but respects Moyes' decisions.

The Brazilian midfielder has made three appearances since linking up with Fiorentina and is hoping that he can earn a long-term deal with the Serie A club.

"To be honest, I've not had the chance," Anderson told The Sun regarding his time at Old Trafford under Moyes. "He gave me one chance or a half, but not a lot.

"He is the manager and I have to respect him. He treated me well and he has a lot of players.

"I have to play and have my chance. It is better for me at Fiorentina.

"The manager wants me and has shown his trust. I can show him my football.

"Even though the contract is only on loan, I want to stay for a long time.

"Fiorentina are a great team with an ambitious project. I want to win in Florence like important players of the past like Edmundo and Batistuta.

"Everyone knows Fiorentina can progress a lot in Italy and in European competition."

Fiorentina currently sit fourth in Serie A, lost 2-1 to Udinese in the first leg of the Coppa Italia semi-final on Tuesday night and face Esbjerg in the last 32 of the Europa League later this month.

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
