Nani was unable to prevent Sporting from losing 1-0, but stated that he's back enjoying his football having been presented with an opportunity for regular action in his homeland.

At the moment it's unclear whether the 27-year-old features in Louis van Gaal's long-term plans, but with more than three years still to run on his £115,000-a-week contract a return to Manchester United should not be ruled out entirely.

Providing Nani performs well consistently for Sporting over the course of the campaign, there's no reason why he can't convince the new Red Devils boss to give him another chance in England.
