Anderson was delighted to taste action for Manchester United as a second-half substitute in last night's victory over Sporting Lisbon.

The former Porto star was booed by Sporting fans and said: "It happens at every club, it's normal in football. It went for two or three minutes and later it died down."

Asked about how he was settling at Old Trafford by the Portuguese media, Brazil international Anderson added: "It is going well. I was late arriving because of the Copa America and soon after I had an injury. But I am calm, because I know I will get chances to show what I can do.

"It is a dream to play in this dream. Cristiano (Ronaldo) has helped me, as has (Ryan) Giggs, (Paul) Scholes. Everyone has helped."
