Manchester United winger Nani insists his form can only improve after a startling start to the season.

After scoring twice in the Community Shield against Manchester City, Nani has been one of the leading figures behind United's 100% start in the Barclays Premier League.

And whilst the winger has previously been living in the shadow of Cristiano Ronaldo after his successful spell at Old Trafford, Nani is now starting to produce in a United shirt, and insists there's more to come.

"That's one dream I've got: to be the best in the world," he said.

"But I don't let it frustrate me. I have other priorities like winning trophies with the team.

"Hopefully, when I have finished playing football, people will say 'Nani was a fantastic player who won a lot of titles and beat records at the club'.


"I know I have the condition to be among the select best players in the world but I have to work hard and show that."

The 24-year-old had been a source of frustration for United fans prior to last season's title win, with the Portuguese international seemingly intent on showboating, but the former Sporting Lisbon winger is willing to show he can be a team player as well this term.

"Last year was my best year, definitely my most consistent season," he added.

"Now I hope this is my year. I will do my best.

"If I am fit for every game, I am 100 per cent sure I will do my best and will do well for my team.

"This is a big chance to show I can do much more; that I'm a good player with a very strong mentality."
