Nani’s been grounded

Alex Ferguson has banned new Manchester United summer signing Nani from his trademark somersault goal celebration for the player's own safety. I guess shades of Lomara LuaLua’s injury for Portsmouth still linger.

Nani scored on his Manchester United debut against FC Shenzhen in Macau on their pre-season tour of Asia and celebrated the goal with a few flips. No more says Alex Ferguson, Nani had been sidelined with an ankle injury and still did the flips. Some say he landed awkwardly and grimaced in pain afterwards. I didn’t notice it.

Nani will be informed thru Man U #2, Carlos Queiroz who played a key role in bringing Nani to Old Trafford from Sporting Lisbon.

Nani's celebration is a lot like Portsmouth's Lomana LuaLua, a player who spent time on the sidelines after injuring himself with the flips a couple of seasons ago against Arsenal.

You can see a video of Nani's debut and the goal celebration here.
