WITH LA PAZ situated some 3,600 metres (12,000 feet) above sea level, playing football in Bolivia’s third largest city is never easy.

Spare a thought then for former Manchester United midfielder Anderson who lasted just 37 minutes of Internacional’s Copa Libertadores game with Club The Strongest last night before being subbed.

The 26-year old required oxygen before watching his side slump to a 3-1 defeat.

After missing a penalty on his debut last week, it hasn’t been a great start to his new career for the Brazilian.
