ANDERSON IN DREAD.

Byline: DAVID McDONNELL

MANCHESTER UNITED midfielder Anderson has no intention of cutting off his dreadlocks - because it would reduce him to tears.

The Brazilian, who insists his distinctive hair defines him as a person, said: "There is no chance I would ever consider having all my hair cut off. My hair is my life.

"It's so important to me. If you cut off my hair, it is like cutting out my heart or cutting off my legs. I would cry for days and days."

Anderson also mocked the English emphasis on fitness over finesse in football.

"In England, sometimes people think you aren't very good if you don't run around a lot," he said.

"But I think that's one of the reasons why England don't do very well at World Cup finals. They run around too much."
