Nani turned the game around for Manchester United against Reading after coming on for Phil Jones just before half time. He scored our first goal and then provided a brilliant cross for Chicharito to make it 2-0.
Our Portuguese winger didn’t even make the squad for the Real Madrid game this week but Nani has insisted he is happy to help the team whenever the manager asks him to.
“Everyone is ready to help the team,” said Nani. “I was glad to get an opportunity to come on, I enjoyed the game and helped the team. I scored the first goal and that changed the game and I am pleased to get an assist to help the team to this big win.”
Three days ago, Nani was involved in a car crash with an unmarked police car. Nani escaped the crash unharmed and there was just minor damage to his Bentley Continental.
“It was not a big crash but I’m happy,” he added. “These things happen and I’m just very happy for this beautiful day and will keep working.”
