Anderson believes Manchester United's work ethic separates them from the rest.

Brazilian star dreaming of Champions League glory

Brazil midfielder Anderson believes Manchester United's work ethic is what makes them so successful. The 20-year-old, signed from Porto last summer, is grateful for the chance to play alongside a host of world class players at Old Trafford. After helping United to win the Premier League, he now wants to cap his first season in England by winning the Champions League. And Anderson, who will be in the squad for Wednesday's final against Chelsea in Moscow, knows hard graft can be the difference between winning and losing. "A team with players like (Wayne) Rooney, (Carlos) Tevez, (Cristiano) Ronaldo, (Michael) Carrick, (Paul) Scholes and other star players, you don't need to do much, only work hard, " he said. "That's something I do and if I have the chance I will try to help my team the best that I can and make the most of the moment.

Moscow dream

"It is a dream for any player to be in a Champions League final and I am no different." Anderson has chalked up an impressive 38 appearances for United and his dynamic displays at home and abroad quickly won over Ferguson and the supporters. The only surprise is that, given his reputation before he arrived, he has failed to score. He said: "When I came to United I already knew they had a very good team with some of the top players in the world. "This club is used to winning trophies. That is the most important thing for them. "Reaching the Champions League final is another step forward for United. "We know how important it is to win this trophy and others in the future."
