Manchester United midfielder Anderson has dismissed rumours of a loan move to Premier League strugglers Fulham, insisting that he is happy to fight for his place in David Moyes’ side.
During the summer it appeared that Anderson would play a prominent part in Moyes’ plans, figuring in the majority of United’s pre season games, but the Brazilian has made just 5 appearances this season, with the most recent coming in United’s 2-1 home defeat to West Brom.
With his first team future in doubt, the former Porto star had been linked with a move to Fulham and a reunion with former United coach Rene Meulensteen, but Anderson has denied this:
“I cannot say anything about other clubs showing an interest. I am at Manchester United and am a Manchester United player. I have to do my job here and work hard every day to make it work because that’s what I want.
“I am not thinking about moving on. All I am thinking about is helping my team, my team-mates and doing the best for myself. I am a Manchester United player, I love the fans, I love the club. I love the way everyone supports the club – it is amazing. It is the best club in the world.
“It is good with the new manager. I have no problems with David Moyes. He’s new and it is completely different. We have to help him to be successful.
“Every single player wants to play every game. I am the same as all the rest. I am only 25 years old but I cannot stay one more year and not play. I need to play. But you cannot demand to play, you have to be patient and when you get your chance you have to do well.
“The club have always been nice to me but if I have to go eventually then I have to go. But I will work to do my best for United.”
