Anderson: If I don't have these injuries I can be one of the best midfield players in England
Manchester United midfielder Anderson has declared himself fit and ready to finally be a success in England.
The 24-year-old has been at Old Trafford for five years, but having arrived with a reputation as one of the brightest young talents in world football, he has so far struggled to develop into the star player many had predicted that he would become.
Injuries have been a major obstacle to Andersons progress, with the latest being a cruciate knee ligament problem which restricted him to just 16 appearances for Manchester United last season.
However, the Brazil international has played the Red Devils' last three pre-season matches and believes that if he can keep himself fit, then he can become one of the best midfielder players in the Premier League.
''I think everybody knows that if I don't have these injuries I can be one of the best midfield players in England, but when I have an injury I can do nothing,'' Anderson was quoted as saying to the Daily Star.
''We know I've had many problems at Manchester United but now I am back after 25 days of holiday and the knee feels good.''
