7 years later, Anderson has finally left Manchester United.
The Brazilian central midfielder has never really broken into the first team at Old Trafford.
Now at Fiorentina, the slightly larger than life Anderson has been the handed the number 88 shirt AKA Two Fat Ladies.
Twitter was obviously not very forgiving.
The Fiorentina boss has got a job on his hands keeping Ando from the fantastic pizza parlours in Italy.

Anderson to wear number 88 at Fiorentina. Not familiar with bingo calling lingo then.

Fiorentina's Anderson will wear the number 88. In Housie we call it, ''two fat ladies''. Can't be a coincidence.
