Things are going from bad to worse for Manchester United fans right now. Not only do they have to contend with Real Madrid dangling the world’s biggest carrot in front of Cristiano Ronaldo (and there’s nothing that the Portugeezer likes better than the orange vegetable), it now appears as though one of their star midfielders could be out with a long-term injury.
What’s worse, the injury to Anderson occurred as a result of a crunching Javier Mascherano challenge on Wednesday evening, when Brazil were playing Argentina. It’s not as if there needs to be any further bad blood between Liverpool and United, especially as they ‘enjoy’ such a fierce rivalry already.
Setanta report that angry Anderson left the field on a stretcher, clutching his knee. United fans will hope he makes a speedy recovery and is ready for the start of what could be a very productive season for the midfielder, especially if his mate’s playing in the white of Real Madrid come the start of the new campaign.
