As a fan you take heart in the player’s enthusiasm and confidence that they can come together to lessen the blow of Scholes retirement and Anderson is the latest player to throw his voice behind this belief.
The Brazilian midfielder is about to begin his 5th season as a United player and having been touted as a replacement for Scholes it appears he is ready to step up to the plate as he told Sky Sports News,
“Scholes was amazing, a legend, but it means more opportunity, more space for me.
“Scholes was one player where I learn a lot, he was unbelievable and for me the best midfielder in the world.
“I think Scholes was very important for the team as he had amazing quality, but I think everyone together can take his position.”
