Football News

Nani was one of the many Manchester United players who found himself surplus to requirements following the arrival of Louis van Gaal.

The Portugal international was sent on a season-long loan deal to Sporting Lisbon as part of the Marcos Rojo deal and joined Turkish giants Fenerbahce on a permanent transfer last summer.

Nani has managed to rediscover some of his old form and confidence since leaving Old Trafford - and has scored one of the best goals of his career against Konyaspor in a cup game this evening.

The 29-year-old had a free-kick on the left-hand side of the pitch, quite close to the touchline, and shaped to bend a cross into the penalty area.

However, Nani deceived the Konyaspor goalkeeper by shooting and the ball found the back of the net.

Nani slams Van Gaal

In a recent interview with the Sunday Times - per Sky Sports - Nani blasted Van Gaal for treating Manchester United’s stars ‘like kids’.

"He and his assistant were shouting at players like we were kids, like 18-year-old," he said. "And I think, 'This is not the way to treat us because I am professional, I am training every day, I'm doing nothing wrong, I'm putting quality in the training'."

Nani added: "'You must pass the ball like this', 'Come on!' Blah, blah, blah. It's crazy.

"It's difficult to play football like that. Because football is instinct.

"If you see you must shoot, first touch. If you see you must take a touch, you take a touch."
