Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has paid tribute to Darren Fletcher and Anderson after the duo left Old Trafford.
Although the pair were deemed surplus to requirements, van Gaal feels they will be missed in the dressing room.
Despite their popularity it was the right time for the pair to leave given their fortunes took a turn for the worse towards the end of their time at United.
Fletcher recovered from a serious illness to return to the United first team but his performances deteriorated this season and he looked a shadow of the player he once was.
Anderson became something of a joke figure at United with some increasingly poor performances for the club after initially impressing during a promising debut season.
Both players were big personalities at United and we wish them well at their new clubs.
