First look: Nani in a Manchester United shirt (video)

With Paul Scholes injured, Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson handed his summer signing from Sporting Lisbon Nani a debut against FC Shenzhen.

Below is a video I’ve compiled of all his touches during his 60 odd minutes on the pitch. He looked lively and did well all things considered. He made a few good passes, switched wings, scored, and for the most part looked in sync with the rest of the team.

He was doubtful for the game as he was recovering from an ankle injury but was deemed fit to play.

Nani then scored with a first time strike from the right of the penalty area after Giggs’s brilliant back flick. He celebrated the goal with trademark somersaults. From what I saw, his 17m transfer fee looks well spent as he looks to have a lot more on offer. By the way, United won 6-0.

Here is the video with all of Nani’s touches:

Thanks for posting the video. It was a very good debut. Confident young man, with pace and he did connect well. Look forward to him running at EPL defenders and linking up with Ron, Roon, Giggsy, Scholes, and hopefully Tevez

Also, it should be known that Utd have only paid £8M for him up front. The rest is dependant on clauses.
