The Daily Mail:

Manchester United teenager Anderson has been taken to task over his flamboyant lifestyle and warned he is in danger of placing his Manchester United future in jeopardy.

Worried 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.

After being urged to concentrate on his career and forget the trappings of his new-found fame and fortune, the Brazilian appeared to heed his team-mates' advice with a performance against Wigan on Saturday that earned glowing praise from Carlos Queiroz.

The United assistant manager said: "That was more like the Anderson we saw at Porto and I was delighted with him. I know what he is capable of and there were signs that he is beginning to settle and play at the level we want from him."
