Anderson, 24, spoke in the same interview about the importance of Sir Alex Ferguson to Manchester United and has always insisted that he has much that he still wishes to achieve with the Red Devils.
However, in the future, the Brazilian would like to return to the club that gave him his first taste of European football, but he has ruled out ever joining rivals Benfica - despite a rumoured approach earlier this year.
Anderson told the TV show: "I would like to return [to Porto] one day, but I would never play for Benfica.
"This is certain in my head. It is not in my plans to play for Benfica although I respect them as a club."
Anderson joined Porto from Grêmio in 2006 for €7 million, spending just 18 months at the Dragão during which he spent time on the sidelines with a broken leg.
