The 21-year-old has not even made the bench at times during his maiden Premier League campaign, but he was one of the most effective performers in United´s encouraging 1-1 Champions League draw with AS Roma on Wednesday night and Ferguson is confident he has a big future with the club.
"Nani is settling in very well at our club. When we brought him here, we told him he would not play all the time," said Ferguson. "We will get injuries as the season goes on. But the times he has played, Nani has done well, particularly in the first-half (on Wednesday night) when he was a big threat."
