Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson is confident Anderson and Nani are set to become stars at Old Trafford.

The duo arrived from Sporting Lisbon and Porto, respectively, last summer and Ferguson believes he has seen 'evidence' that the youngsters have the potential to become long-term fixtures in the United side.

Anderson sat out United's convincing 5-1 Premier League victory over Newcastle on Saturday but the 19-year old has caught the eye since arriving in England in July last year.

Ferguson admits Nani , who completed a full 90 minutes at St James' Park, has required more time to adapt to the English game but the United boss feels the 21-year-old is also beginning to demonstrate his potential.

Next generation

And with the likes of Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes nearing the end of their United careers, Ferguson is keen for Nani and Anderson to become the Red Devils' next generation of attacking midfielders.

"We are very pleased with their progress," said Ferguson.

"The evidence is there for you. Anderson has exploded into it while Nani has taken his time.

"He has got better and better, the boy. He is a different type of player, of course, and both are doing well."

Nani's coming along, if he can do it consistenlty he'll be good enough but bar his last two/ three games he hasn't been good enough for united!

I thought both would need a season or two to really settle in but I was wrong. Anderson only needed a couple of months and Nani is already starting to show signs of what he's capable of - I'm expecting big things from them both next season.

Agreed.... they are probably two of the better youngest players in the premiership, they have the drive and the ambition to do well.
