The pair left at the beginning of this month after finding it difficult to break in to the side at Old Trafford in the first half of the season. Anderson only made two appearances and Fletcher 13 before their departure. Judging from the Dutchman’s comments he misses the Scot far more than the Brazilian. The 30-year-old was the vice-captain of the side for the first part of the campaign.

The 63-year-old said, “A couple of long-serving players, Darren Fletcher and Anderson, left the club during the recent transfer window. Darren was one of my captains. He showed his true strength of character after being out of the game for so long and came back to full fitness after the illness he had suffered in the past.”

He added, “He has been a great servant to the club and I think we can all understand his decision to move on as he wanted to play more football. Both Darren and Anderson will be missed in the dressing room as they were strong characters. I’m sure the supporters will join me in wishing them both well in the future careers.”

The Red Devils have been criticised lately for the manner in which they are playing. While they have been in the top four of the Premier League for the majority of the season, fans are unhappy with the lack of adventure from the star studded side.
