Nani gives United crucial win

Published Add your comment

Nani's sixth-minute strike was enough to earn Manchester United a precious 1-0 Champions League win over Bursaspor at the end of a traumatic few days at Old Trafford.

The impact of Wayne Rooney's damning statement about United's perceived lack of ambition was still sinking in when Nani curled home an excellent effort from 25 yards.

And although they couldn't find a second in a largely drab encounter, it was enough to maintain their progress towards the knockout phase.
