Ben Foster on Anderson
Ben Foster talking on a Manchester United podcast opened up about his time at United. He spoke highly of his teammate Anderson. He was critical of Anderson’s commitment to his game. Foster feels he was easygoing in nature and this essentially cost the Brazilian greatness.
“He could have been the best player in the world at one point, I promise you he could have. Everybody would say that he could have been the best in the world at one point.
But he just didn’t care, he didn’t care about anything. Honestly, he didn’t care about anything. But you put him on a pitch and he was like that.
Carlos Tevez was the same sort of thing. Put him on the pitch and oh my god. There has got to be something in being South American, there’s got to be something in that”
Anderson is one among the long line of Brazilian players who never lived up to their true potential. In 105 appearances for Manchester United, The Brazilian managed to score 7 times and assist 5 times. Anderson left Manchester United in 2015.
