Manchester United's Anderson says that he feels "great" after working hard on improving his fitness levels.

Manchester United midfielder Anderson has insisted that he has been working hard on his fitness over the last few months.

The Brazilian has had a catalogue of injuries since he arrived at Old Trafford from Porto in 2007 and upon each return, he has often been criticised for being overweight.

However, the 25-year-old believes that he is now in the best shape possible.

"I've been training hard on the training pitch and in the gym, and working on my conditioning. I am pleased with how things are going and, whenever the manager needs me, I will be ready," he told Inside United.

"I have been doing more running, which has helped my fitness. The physios in Portugal have helped me a lot, as have all the coaches at United. I have also been working hard myself. I have built up the strength in my knee, worked hard in training.

"I have been eating well and sleeping well, while I have also been coming into training on my days off to do more work. It has really helped me and I feel great."

Anderson has featured for just four minutes in the Premier League so far this season.
