No more Nani goad

Published Add your comment

Manchester United winger Nani has revealed that a stern word from manager Sir Alex Ferguson was enough to persuade him not to repeat his on-field juggling antics.

The 21-year-old provoked the fury of several Arsenal players, as well as Ferguson, when he indulged in some ´kick-ups´ towards the end of last weekend´s 4-0 FA Cup thrashing of the Gunners at Old Trafford.

Nani said: "In Portugal I have done this many times but it is only because it is an entertaining spectacle and not because I disrespect my rivals. I am a professional and am always very respectful with all the opposing players, but I do appreciate now that it may have looked bad."
