Manchester United’s Portuguese winger Luis Nani has admitted that this season has not been the best of seasons for him at Old Trafford and he blamed it much on his inconsistency after returning to full match fitness having spent a month out with a knee ligament injury.
Nani was injured during United’s 2-1 victory against English Premier League rivals Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium and made his comeback against Ajax Amsterdam in the UEFA Europa League match at Old Trafford last week but he could not prevent his side going down 2-1 to the Dutch side at the end of the match.
However, Nani believes that the 90 minutes of playing that he got during the match will improve his game and ultimately prove to be valuable in the long term perspectives of the season. United are in a direct battle against local rivals Manchester City for the English Premier League title as well as the UEFA Europa League crown and Luis Nani believes that if he can remain consistent till the end of the season, he can contribute a lot to the success of the side.
Nani, who was bought from Portuguese giants Sporting Lisbon as a foil for Cristiano Ronaldo form more than £ 20 million in 2007 has always been regarded as a great player but extremely inconsistent and this season proved that point to the core. However, Nani believes that his inconsistency can be blamed on the several injury layoffs that he has had throughout the season and is looking forward to remaining fit as the season winds down to a close.
Luis Nani also believes that if he can add some more match time with the Reserve squad, he will benefit from it, and he insists that he will be back to his best once he completely overcomes the injury.
