Ahead of the weekend’s victory over Spurs, Nani had been asked why he didn’t celebrate with a flip any more.

“Since I injured my shoulder, I’ve been taking care of myself a little bit more!” said Nani. “I can do the backflip without putting my hands down, but I don’t want to risk putting my hands down and injure my shoulder again. The next goal I score I promise for the fans that I will do the backflip, the one without putting my hands down!”
