Anderson has denied he wants to quit Manchester United but admitted he is frustrated at his lack of first-team opportunities so far this season.
Anderson told the Daily Mail: "I believed that I would play in the Community Shield but that is forgotten now.
"I thought that, without Cristiano Ronaldo around, I could to play more and that has been my challenge from pre-season onwards.
"But the coach decides the teams and to discuss this with him is foolish because he is the chief. I do not want to leave United. No.
"Sir Alex Ferguson has demanded a bigger effort from me and I accept that. Because to get into this United team is very complicated and difficult for any player."
