Friendly Watch: Nani listens to Fergie’s backflip warning


27th, July 2007


The evidence is that Manchester United new boy Nani has taken his manager’s concerns about his somersault celebration on board. His post-goal activities following this delightful effort against Guangzhou Pharmaceutical were much more muted. United won 3-0, Wayne Rooney having opened the scoring from the penalty spot and Lee Martin also finding the net.

    Rather than 2-0, ManU won 3-0 with the third being scored by Lee Martin in the 53rd minute.

    A poor cross. Delightful outcome.

  3. Visser says:

    Scary stuff… given he meant it.

  4. Liam O'Kelly says:

    Did u see him giving that that glance to the sidelines right after he scored. It was like a child having his favourite toy taken away.

    Who, exactly, would he be crossing for?
    Sure, it brings into question what exactly the guy ambling around on the far side of the box thought he was doing, but he certainly wasn’t getting into any areas in which he could be crossed to.
