Nobody can tell me he has been a success at the club, and I'd say he is one of the reasons we are in this position.

A waste of money!

The Dutch international midfielder has used United’s enforced break to get back to full fitness after suffering a hamstring injury in December.

Anita has been training twice a day with United during their week-long stay in La Manga. He could be back in consideration for a place in the squad that travels to Stoke City on March 2.

The former Ajax star could offer another option at left-back following injury problems for Paul Dummett and Kevin Mbabu.

Speaking from the La Manga Club, Anita said: “I have been out for seven-and-a-half weeks - that is way too long for me and the longest I have ever been out.

“But I am back training with the group for the first time and my hamstring feels good. I hope to get back on the pitch very soon to help the team because it is hard watching at any time, but even more so when results aren’t going our way.

“You want to help but you cannot do anything other than offering support to your teammates, which is what I have done. But now I am getting closer to playing again and that will be a good moment for me.

“You get everybody together for a few days with no other surroundings and no distractions, so it means everyone is completely focussed.

“A change of scenery from being at the same training ground every day of the season is also nice.

“The weather is better than at home, we are able to work hard in it with two sessions a day, and the team will benefit from this.”

United face Norwegian side Lillestrom SK in a friendly at the La Manga Club today (2pm).
