Nani: Moyes convinced me to sign

Much to the surprise and delight of RoM, Nani was given a new five-year-deal last week, which shows David Moyes has more time for the Portuguese winger than our former manager did.

“I am very content with my new deal at Manchester United,” Nani said. “This summer was not easy but, after a lot of thought and talking to David Moyes, I believe it was the best solution. I feel I can offer many things to United. I had other important offers, but without a sufficient challenge to make me want to leave United. The coach would not guarantee me a place more than any other player. I know I must work hard to get into this team. That is my objective for this season.”

Moyes has also expressed his happiness over the new contract and has hailed Nani’s efforts in training.

“I’m really pleased Nani has re-signed for the next five years,” said Moyes. “He has great ability and experience beyond his 26 years. I’ve been impressed with his approach to training and look forward to working with him in the coming seasons.”

    Also re Kagwa, it would be disappointing if he was not frustrated on being on the bench. He was voted best player in the German league ahead of players like Ribbery, Lewandowki and the rest of the Bayern lot. He is a world class player and he should be frustrated, in particular as he has delivered more than others at United. In terms of public announcements well Rooney has set a precedent and he was good about not saying to much last season. You can’t compare with Pea, Kagwa is a different league of player. He has been the best in both Japan and Germany. At United he has been played out of position, benched, talked about like a weak Asian who can’t handle the physicality of the EPL, which is bullshit. He is very capable of being one of the best in the EPL and that is why there are so many questions about how he is being used at United.

    I am glad Chris Woods will continue as goalkeeping coach for the USA. He did a marvelous job with Howard at Everton, turning him into a top keeper that many of us thought he was when he played for us.

    Other pluses of Woods internationals role outside of the UK.
    1st, longball england is about the worst team you could imagine tactically.
    2nd, Jurgen Klinsmann (USA coach) has a different view of style and eye for talent, that is well worth having represented in our coaching ranks. Klinsmann is an up & coming coach and well worth keeping an eye on. Additionally, Woods will get to see footballers (in the Americas) not normally seen in Europe, and might spot some up and coming talent for us.

    All in all, a good move.

    How many liverpool fans does it take to change a lightbulb?

    None. They’d rather sit around and talk about how bright the old one was.

  7. DreadedRed says:

    Suarez is said to be distraught about liverpool’s transfer dealings. He heard that Brendan Rodgers was bringing in new faces, and was desperately hoping that he’d get one.

    Interesting read:

    Rene Meulensteen pips former red Magnus Eikrem for big things. Was he one that got away?

    George Best 50th Anniversary Sept 14, 1963.

    Some truly great remembrances at ManUtd.com .

    Don’t recall a woman alive at that time who wasn’t in love with Georgie. Mum’s claimed him as their son, Grandum’s as their own. Every one of them with a glint in the eye as well!

    @Nairobired:
    @thecantona
    Giggs longevity now seems like some sort of death defying feat that he has achieved and he’s doing the club a massive favour by continuing playing and denying other young players who should be the future the chance to play. He may have 2 CL winners medals and has many games under his belt but I can’t ever remember a game in europe where Giggs was the man who completely controlled the game or was our main weapon or even a single moment of individual brilliance in europe. I can name several in the league and FA but none in europe. Now beckham, scholes solskjaer on the other hand.

    hahahaha! how long u been supporting this club u clueless twat? bet u never watch our game against Juventus at Delle Alpi in 02/03 then??
