Former World Player of the Year Rivaldo has backed Anderson to be successful at Manchester United - if he's granted time to adjust to Premiership life.

The ex-Barcelona superstar, who is now at AEK Athens, says of Anderson: "He's very good, a huge talent. But you need to be patient with him. His development should be controlled, giving him encouragement, but everything done calmly.

"We're talking about a youngster who has the qualities to be a great player."
