Anderson cleared of drug-lord liaison
http://www.teamtalk.com/football/story/0,16368,1778_4184798,00.html

Manchester United midfielder Anderson has been cleared of any wrongdoing after a notorious drug dealer was arrested at his home in Brazil.



Richard Alex da Silva Martins 'Gigi' was detained at the home of the Brazil international after a year-long investigation, but Public Ministry official Ricardo Herbstrich stressed Anderson was not involved in the case.

Herbstrich, who led the operation in the Menino Deus neighbourhood in Porto Alegre, told the Zero Hora newspaper: "There is nothing against Anderson in this investigation.

"According to what we have, he is just a friend of the dealer and maybe he doesn't even know he is a criminal."

Agent Paulo Tonietto, who manages Anderson's businesses in Brazil, added: "The only thing I can say is that Anderson, as well as any other person, can be a friend of whoever he wants, but he is not involved in any crime.

"Anderson is a professional and he will offer an explanation of what has happened soon."

If you read the text you will see precisely that!

I question this threads location as it has nothing to do, apparently, with Anderson nor United.
Exactly.

Anyway, if it was true, if he wants to be friends with a dealer than so be it, as long as he isn't taking anything.

Though why you would want to be friends with a dealer is rather questionable! :cool:

Maybe hes a child hood friend, I mean he did come from a dodgy porto alegre neighborhood. anyway I really dont know what to think, In reality alot of people in sports, music, tv etc are connected with Underworld figures especially in south america. In mexico two latin grammy winning artists were assasinated in a year for allegedly being associated with drug cartels. So if it was true that he was involved with drug traffickers, sadly it would not surprise me.
