The Manchester United manager, Sir Alex Ferguson, praised Luis Nani as helping his team beat Reading 2-1 in the fifth round of the FA Cup at Old Trafford on Monday (02/18/2013). He said the Portuguese player deserves to be the best player in the game.
Nani latter is rarely played by Ferguson. Understandably, other than reluctantly signed a contract extension that will expire at the end of the season, his performance is still not consistent. Throughout this season, Nani only played 16 times and scored only three goals.
When against Reading, Nani entered the field in 42nd minute replacing injured Phil Jones. Ferguson praised his former Sporting Lisbon because success create one goal plus an assist.
"Nani deserves to be man of the macth. Outstanding contribution. I was feeling, he would have won the game for us," said Ferguson as quoted by the BBC.
