The once Brazil international got into an altercation during a training ground drill, which transpired in him punching team-mate William in the face.

Internacional had been taking part in what appeared to be a standard training ground drill when Anderson sent an attempt blazing over the cross bar.
The pair then appeared to exchange words with William saying something in the direction of the midfielder before the two came to a physical altercation.
Former United man Anderson could be seen making a clear punch at William which connected, causing the young defender to recoil.
From that point chaos ensued, a livid William attempting to surge back at Anderson before being restrained by several team-mates simultaneously. 
The youngster was dragged away from the scene with what appeared to be traces of blood coming from his mouth. 
Midfielder Anderson rose to public conciousness after signing for Manchester United in a big money deal in 2007.

United battled with some of Europe's elite clubs to tie up the signature of Anderson, who the then manager Sir Alex Ferguson swooped for alongside Portuguese winger Nani.
Anderson was just 18-years-old when the Red Devils brought him to England.  
The Brazilian midfielder made over 100 appearances for the Red Devils and was originally seen as the long term answer to United's central midfield dilemma following the departure of Paul Scholes. 
But the No 8 never lived up to his promise and soon found himself unable to penetrate the first team, discarded under manager David Moyes and criticised by the football world for appearing out of shape.
Anderson had a short loan spell with Italian side Fiorentina in 2015 before returning to his native Brazil and signing for current club Internacional. 
Internacional are yet to comment on the training ground incident.
