Manchester United Spell Anderson's Name Wrong, But He's Not The First Victim

Posted: Updated:

Bullied and beaten by a dominant Everton side, Manchester United's kit department was defeated as well on Monday evening at Goodison Park when substitute Anderson arrived with his name spelt incorrectly.

The Brazilian, a late arrival for Tom Cleverley, had the right number - 8 - but arrived under the guise of 'Andesron'.

Anderson is not the first United player to fall victim of a printer's spelling mistake though.

David Beckham also came off the bench in the 1997 Charity Shield against Chelsea at Wembley wearing the number seven for the first time in a competitive match for United after Eric Cantona's retirement, only his name was spelt 'Beckam'.

Unlike Anderson, Beckham departed the pitch a victor, as United beat the Blues 4-2 in a penalty shootout after a 1-1 draw during normal time.
