Nani explains why he cried after scoring for Sporting Lisbon

by Sam Peoples

Nani scored a wonderful goal for Sporting Lisbon this weekend but to the surprise of many, he burst into tears during his celebration.

The 28-year-old reeled off to celebrate his goal but broke down when surrounded by his team-mates.

It was a strange sight to see and speaking after the game, Nani explained why he couldn’t hold back his emotion.

“It was a goal like any other,” he told reporters. “I received the ball, saw the goal, shot and I was lucky.”

“I thought about myself and everything that I have gone through. It’s personal stuff, that nobody knows about.”

Whatever the personal reason, it was great enough to force Nani to burst into tears when he should have been enjoying the moment given how good his strike was.

Manchester United fans have been following Nani’s progress out in Portugal and so we asked our readers for their opinion as to whether they thought he had a future at the club past this summer.

Nani has always been capable of scoring from nothing but is he worth the inconsistency?
