Man Utd boss Ferguson: Anderson like Scholes

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson admits Brazilian youngster Anderson is the man to eventually succeed Paul Scholes.

"Anderson has exploded on to the scene for us and been absolutely phenomenal," said Fergie. "We're really pleased with his progress and the evidence is there for all to see.

"When Scholes got his last injury it opened the door for Anderson, and we discovered a boy who had talent.

"He isn't entirely like Scholes, although there are similarities. But he's more of an aggressive running player."
