Nani makes a move that Rooney should follow

by Sam Peoples

Nani has every reason to be disillusioned with his career so far at Manchester United. He gets more stick than most players from fans who equally have every right to be frustrated at his topsy turvy time so far at Old Trafford.

But instead of crawling into a ball and pushing for a move away, Nani wants to stay and fight for his place at United according to The GuardianHe wants to prove to David Moyes that he deserves his spot in the team and doesn’t want to move on to pastures new to make his life easier.

“I hope to win the league again and, for my personal wishes, I want to be at my best and score a lot of goals. Like I said, I just need to be at my best and then everything will come together.” Nani

We will be prepared to give him another chance if it looks like he is ready to try and grab his opportunity with both hands because Nani is a world beater on his day. He is still our best winger. That sort of attitude is what fans are after.  Take note, Wayne Rooney.

Rooney questioned United’s ambition in 2010. Two years later, we sign the league’s top scorer and win the Premier League at a canter, so Rooney’s frustrations turn to a lack of game time in the face of Robin van Persie’s rise.

The unfortunate reality is that Rooney still thinks he is infallible. He thinks he is invincible to criticism and that it is his given right to start for United. He lost that right when Van Persie signed. No longer was it unthinkable to have a United team without Rooney. Towards the end of the season, it was even preferred.

Like Nani, Rooney is world class on his day and United fans would rather see him stay than leave but if he isn’t up for the fight, then what’s the point in wasting time trying to persuade him otherwise?
