Manchester United midfielder Anderson is hoping to justify his place in Sir Alex Ferguson's squad, as the Brazilian continues to be linked with a move away from Old Trafford.
Recent reports have seen the 24 year-old linked with a move to Portugal, with Benfica believed to be keen on a deal.
However, as reported in the Mirror, Anderson is planning to underline his importance to United, by turning around a career which has threatened to fall apart in recent seasons.
A succession of injuries, as well as off-field dramas have seen the midfield man stutter in his development since transferring from Porto in 2007.
When asked whether this is a 'make or break' season, Anderson said: “Yes, definitely.
“I need to prove what I can do. I know the boss and my team-mates believe in me, I’ve just had bad luck.”
During his five years at the club, Anderson has made 145 appearances, scoring seven times.
However, following the arrival of Shinji Kagawa from Borussia Dortmund, the spotlight has been placed on Anderson, as his future comes under scrutiny, something he knows he needs to dispell.
“I want to improve as much as I can and help the team win trophies. I just want to play. For me, this season is very important,” he said.
