“I try to enjoy playing now, but it is not always possible because I have a responsibility to the team,” Nani said. “But something of the street remains in me. It is not easy to show at United because Sir Alex does not allow very much freedom and I cannot do the tricks and things I did with my friends. When the game is under control I take a risk and it makes me very happy if things work out.”
Whilst I don’t necessarily agree he should get a free rein, I think a player as naturally gifted as him should be given the opportunity to try different things out on the pitch. It seems like a waste of talent to put restraints on his tricks.
