Sonny Anderson #9 FC Barcelona (Spain) Match Worn Shirt for Spanish League 1997-98. Unique Model. Provenance: Former FC Barcelona 1997-98 Player.
Anderson da Silva (born 19 September 1970), known as Sonny or Anderson, is a Brazilian retired footballer who played as a striker. A prolific goalscorer at the club level, he was best known for his spells with Lyon, Monaco (he played most of his abroad career in France, amassing Ligue 1 totals of 221 matches and 138 goals) and Barcelona. Anderson participated with Brazil in the 2001 Confederations Cup.
In 1997, Anderson joined FC Barcelona: having to battle for first-choice status with the likes of Luis Enrique and Patrick Kluivert, he fared well, scoring ten times in La Liga alone in his first season, as the Catalans won the double. In his second year, which included some run-ins with manager Louis Van Gaal, he played less, which prompted a return to France with rising Olympique Lyonnais, for approximately €18 million. He would be a very important attacking figure as the team won the first two of seven consecutive national championships.
