Manchester United may be loathe to label new signing Nani the ´new´ Ronaldo but Rio Ferdinand admits comparisons between the two Portugal wingers are inescapable.

After a delayed entrance due to an ankle injury sustained on European Under-21 duty in the summer, Nani finally got to make his debut for United in their Far East tour 6-0 hammering of Shenzhen in Macau.

"Nani does remind me of a young Ronaldo," Ferdinand told MUTV. "I hope that won´t be a burden for him - I am sure it won´t be."
