Hi everyone!

I'm a late Man United supporter and failrly new to this forum....so please forgive my lack of knowledge! ...I can't help it, I'm a kiwi...we play rugby & cricket...apparently we play football too, but not very well haha lol

With the metoric rise of Brazils Anderson at Man U, I was hoping all you knowledgable Man U fans might be able to tell me who the last Brazilian player was to star in the Red Devils first team.

I know we have had a few south American players over the years like Heinze and Veron but I can't remember any Brazilians specifically.

fergie is still addament that kleberson was a great footballer ... and maybe the move from brazil straight to england was too much, i remember stories about him never leaving his hotel he was staying at other than for games and training and he never bought a property in manchester he also had a young family ... the lad never settled thats for sure

To be fair to Kleberson, he did play in a World Cup final, get a winners medal
and set up one of the goals so he cant be all that bad.
Ok, he wasnt the May West at United but he still won a World Cup so......

Kleberson is a great footballer. I remember watching the 2002 final where he played a wonderful game and he was inches from scoring a beauty. He had it maybe 25 - 30 yards out and let fly, beat Kahn and smashed against the crossbar. I didn't know much about his United spell so hearing that he didn't leaves his hotel or buy property explains a lot about why he never settled.

Kleberson was an awsome player. He just could not adpat to the English game like Veron and Forlan. I look forward to seeing the silva twins and possebon. They look really good signings to me and Anderson is already a world class talent in the making of a great.
