  4. shmoo says:

    looks like hes a chirpy lad :)

  5. Jeet says:

    I hope SAF agrees with him whe he says he’s one of the guys training the hardest…:)

  6. Blomqvist's left toe says:

    bchilds, it kind of does if you’re Portuguese :D

  7. Red Typhoon says:

    That was funny,,LOL..but it was also very nice to see Nani in that sort of mood!!

    Who’s the guy interviewing him? He’s got some skills too!!

  8. RedMist says:

    Shut those adverts up please. I can’t hear the video because it’s being drowned out by those bloody noisy adverts!

  9. bchilds says:

    @ RedMist

    Yea it’s a pain in the arse isn’t it! There’s not even a mute button!

  10. bigphil2003 says:

    1. Still no idea why he’s called Nani
    2. He’s got some balls to claim he’s the best dressed while wearing a green tshirt with white trackies
    3. I love Nani. I do wish he’d cut the crap out of his game though. He seems like the type that would listen if Fergie gave him a real telling off over it though.

  11. bigphil2003 says:

    4. His English impression is hilarious :)

  12. bobkoh says:

    Nice white ride in the driveway! Take me for a drive, Luís Carlos Almeida da Cunha!
    He’s a top, top, top player for us!

  13. romeo says:

    advert annoyin scott

  14. zigoo says:

    yeah the advert is reaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaalllly annoying!
    but sik skillls frm nani!!!

  15. CedarsDevil says:

    Love the kid as a United player, loads of skill and future potential, just hope he keeps his head down and stay as modest as can be…..

    A 100 poor families would live for 2 years from what he earns in a week…. Such is life

    United till I die

  16. Gotta hate tiny tears says:

    Id love to ask Nani why he wears the socks the wrong way around

  17. wayne says:

    in regards to the adverts use headphones then all you hear is the clip

  18. power2havenots says:

    To block flash ads if you browse with firefox use

    It was really doin my nut in – those ads

  19. power2havenots says:

    Oh yeah if you wana view the flash content (ie the video itself) just click the flash icon in the middle

  20. TheSevenOfOT says:

    He has improved ! his english skills i mean . and playing also . Funny clip , nice to see him so relaxed

  21. red_october says:

    Nani is always improving, hopefully the diving stops. I would love to see Nani, Chicharito, Rooney and Berbatov in the top 10 goalscorers this season.

    Forever United.

  22. Toby says:

    I like how he’s joking when he says hes the best dressed etc, Ronaldo used to do the same thing but he was serious 100% of the time haha.

  23. Paul Parker says:

    Come on lads!! this fella Nani has come on leaps and bounds with us and he’s still young, still hungry and still happy as shit to be with Manchester United. There isn’t winger winger in the League I’d swap him for, he’s better then them all, which goes without saying considering he can play either flank as well as up front. We are yet to see the best in him I think, but its coming.

    Can’t wait for Valencia to return so he can get back to swapping wings with Nani – at times we had the best pair of wingers in the league last Season. Hopefully Obertan is eating his oats and paying attention…

  24. Giles Oakley says:

    Great interview, time for a nice cuppa tea mate.

  25. MAXI says:

    Looks like the lad was high….hahahahaha :-)

  26. FletchTHEMAN says:

    REGARDING THE ADVERTS really annoying!!!!!!!

    @power2havenots That add on seems to have done the trick. Don’t know how it will work in future, but for now, I have to actually click on the videos to make them i. load ii. run. Thanks loads for the link!!!!
    You the man today mate!!

    Nani interview. Very very funny stuff. Good interview, top Nani!

  27. Ferane says:

    Why does he not do these tricks in the match???

  28. five says:

    Tricks are a lot easier to pull off in training then a match, in a match he has to concentrate on finding the right person or spotting a run

  29. Gudjohnsen says:

    Haha did Nani smoke a fat one before this interview? He’s a funny guy….

  30. RedScot says:

    He is just stunning, why are the car registration plates blocked out, particularly the white one, how can I stalk him without any clues.! lol

  31. bbabyj says:

    He does some neat tricks in matches too. :)

    Paul Parker: I can’t recall Valencia switching over to the left wing?

  32. musca says:

    interviewer : you want, cup of tea?
    nani : you wannkk, cuck o’ teak?

  33. kel says:


  34. tatt says:

    why nani? – it’s like cute name his parents gave him. a name they used to call him at home. get it?

  35. Eric says:

    If I’m not mistaken, that guy interviewing him was an Arsenal reject. I’ve seen him somewhere before but I just couldn’t remember. Anyway, that was a funny interview. Couldn’t stop loving you Nani!

  36. RedScot says:

    And I missed Paul Parker on the blog, how remiss of me not reading the comments!
    Welcome back Paul.
    @Babbyj, yes i know he is my favourite United player, dont read to much into the Gay innuendo, if you read any of my other posts they are generally fun.
