Ando sets record straight

Manchester United midfielder Anderson wishes to make it clear he has not said that "lots of players" want to leave the club.

The Brazilian was quoted in today's newspapers after speaking at a press conference to mark his arrival at loan club Fiorentina in Italy. But Anderson was talking only about his own situation and not about his Old Trafford team-mates when he said: "Sometimes a footballer wants to leave just to experience a different way to play football and to learn something as well."

Anderson posted a message on his own Instagram page and asked ManUtd.com to help convey this to United supporters around the world.

The post read: "I'm shocked and surprised [by] a supposed interview that never existed. I never gave any interview [and did not] say bad things about a club that I love, a club where I [grew] up and that gave me so much. I'm like [a] fan [of the] club, [I] love the club."
