Ronaldo praises Anderson

Cristiano Ronaldo has hailed young midfielder Anderson for the effort he has put in since joining Man Utd in the summer. An injury to Paul Scholes has seen Anderson called up to the first team and perform brilliantly.

"Anderson is a fantastic player and it's no surprise to anyone at United that he is playing so well," he told the Daily Mirror.

"He is young but he has done a great job since he came to us. He is a man. Just because he is 19 it doesn't mean he cannot compete with players who are older and more experienced than him.

"Anderson is a different player to Scholes and Keane but he has similar qualities to them.

"Every player has his own style, his own mentality and Anderson is showing people what great qualities he has."
