Anderson wants Porto return.
Brazilian midfielder Anderson has expressed a desire to one day return to former club Porto.
The 22-year-old has appeared in just four games in all competitions this term and said, “I am good in Manchester but I’d like to return to Portugal and my preference would be Porto.”
Anderson enjoyed a productive start to life at Old Trafford but a combination of fitness issues and poor form has seen his progress chart flat line since.
Last season he reportedly had a row with Sir Alex Ferguson which saw him fall further down the pecking order.
Utd face reduced derby tickets.
United fans are facing a reduced ticket allocation for next months derby encounter at City.
The Eastland’s club have reduced the Red’s numbers by 10% following complaints about persistent standing in the away section during last season’s meetings.
This season, Bolton Wanderers and Sunderland have also withheld tickets for the same health and safety reasons, and in the past Middlesbrough and Tottenham have done the same.
City’s stewards will close off the first two rows of seats for the clash on November 10, meaning United will be given just over 2500 tickets for the match.
Larsson regrets Utd exit.
Henrik Larsson has revealed that the biggest regret of his career was turning down the chance to stay at Manchester United.
The Swedish striker arrived at Old Trafford on a short term loan in January 2007. He only scored three goals during that spell but made a big impact on all at the club, helping the Reds to regain their Premier League crown.
Sir Alex Ferguson was keen for the former Celtic great to stay, but Larsson had already promised home-town club Helsingborg he would return, and did not want to renege on his word.
Larsson told www.fifa.com, “I should have stayed at United for longer because I had a great time there and everyone at the club was very keen to keep me. My time there was too short.”
