It appears Anderson’s hamstring injury is a little more serious than expected, with The Times stating the midfielder could face being out for 8 weeks.
Anderson had just begun to find form when he was withdrawn in the first half against Reading, a game in which he scored United’s first equaliser, complaining about his hamstring.
The Brazilian has missed both games since and although Sir Alex stated that it wasn’t serious and the midfielder would be out for 3 to 4 weeks, today The Times are reporting that medical staff at Manchester United have discovered a tear in his hamstring that is likely to keep him out for double the amount of time it was initially expected to.
This is just the latest in a long line of injuries for Anderson and it couldn’t have come at a worse time for him as he was getting games and building up a head of steam with some impressive performances.
It has come at a bad time for Man Utd and the player. The lad was playing very well and looked hungry. I would say that this is probably a clear sign to Ferguson that dipping into the transfer market in January should be considered. I know we don’t normally do business in January, but this is different. We have a 6 point lead at the top and we want to keep it that way for as long as possible.
I think adding a central midfielder could make a big difference. Kevin Strootman is the ideal player for Man Utd. The lad is 22 and has already captained the Holland team. He would cost around £14-15 million, which is good value and probably half of what you have to pay for Fellaini.
anderson is always like this, i don`t know why anderson is always getting strong injuries at crucial times.
Every time Anderson plays well, he gets injuried!Why the hell is this possible???
I will really miss u Ando,
we the #United family wishes fast recovery. .
