Manchester United's senior players have pulled Anderson aside to drum into him the dangers of his hectic social life.

The Daily Mail says team-mates have noted the £18million summer signing's fondness for socialising and delivered a blunt message about the perils of over-indulging.

Senior players are believed to have given the 19-year old former Porto midfielder a dressing down over his conduct away from the pitch and left him in no doubt about the consequences of incurring the wrath of manager Sir Alex Ferguson.
