I must admit, when i saw Anderson first few games for United i was in doubt on the young Brazillian’s talent, he looked out of sorts and didn’t really performed well, but when Scholes got injured the 19-year-old stepped in and with every game grew in confidence and showed exceptional talent.
Sir Alex Ferguson has now hailed Anderson as the natural successor to Old Trafford veteran Paul Scholes.
Anderson, 19, has broken into the United first-team far quicker than expected following his Â£19million move from Porto last summer.
He starred in the recent 4-0 FA Cup rout of Arsenal, impressed in the 1-1 Champions League draw at Lyon, and is set to start in the crucial Premier League clash at Fulham on Saturday.
“Anderson has exploded on to the scene for us and been absolutely phenomenal,” said Fergie.
