Manchester United winger Nani wants to continue improving at Old Trafford after his best individual campaign to-date.

The Portuguese international winger spent the later stages of the season competing for first team football alongside Antonio Valencia, and was only on the bench for the Champions League final against Barcelona at Wembley.

However, Nani has accepted Sir Alex Ferguson's decision, and whilst it was difficult for the 24-year-old to take at the time he's hopeful that it will spur him on to bigger and better things next term.

"It was a very positive season for Manchester United, and my best individual campaign," said Nani.

"I was left with a bitter taste in my mouth after not being a starter in the Champions League final. I was hoping to play from the start, but it is up to the coach to decide."


Recent press speculation has linked the former Sporting Lisbon starlet with a move away from Old Trafford this summer, and whilst Nani was happy to admit he'd like to play under Jose Mourinho in the future, he's more than happy with life at Manchester United.

"Would I like to work under Mourinho? Yes, but at this moment I am fine at Manchester United," he continued.

"I am fine at Manchester United, but it is good to hear there are other clubs interested."
