As a United supporter, you would always be frustrated about Anderson.
He is no longer a part of the club, but, still people talk about him.
That guy promised so much. He had that unique sort of aura about him. He was ruthless, fearless and obviously had got talent. In fact, he had got so much of it that the scouts who had tracked him first had compared him with Wayne Rooney straightaway.

The Dutchman believes that he has been answering critics to a certain extent over the last few weeks, but United still remain a long way away from challenging for the title.
