So it looks like at least one Man United player will play in a final this year.
And maybe even win a medal.
On loan from Manchester United, Anderson – whose shirt name reads ‘Andow’ – has qualified for the Coppa Italian final with Fiorentina tonight, La Viola beating Udinese 3-2 on aggregate, 2-0 on the night, courtesy of a pair of stunning golazos.
And a slimline looking Andow (must be all that pasta!) posted a celebratory picture from inside the Fiorentina dressing room, looking pretty happy with life after his difficult last few months at United.
Rainy, crisis-hit Manchester must feel like a long, long way away…
