Former Manchester United winger Nani: No one compares to Sir Alex Ferguson

by Tanveer Arayan

Former Manchester United winger Nani has insisted that there isn’t a manager in the world who can be compared with Sir Alex Ferguson.

Ferguson signed Nani in 2007 before the Portuguese was eventually shipped out to Fenerbahce by Louis van Gaal this summer.

Nani won a number of trophies during his time at Old Trafford and the 29-year-old believes Ferguson was the reason why.

“I think there is no one in the world who can be compared with Alex Ferguson,” Nani said.

“We know each other very well. We worked for six years together, but even one year is enough to understand how good a person and manager Ferguson is.

“You can easily notice how big a role he is playing in the world of football. When I was playing for Manchester United, I could see that Ferguson was everything for the club.

“Sometimes the team were not doing well, but with a single word he managed to change everything and won the match.”


Nani was unplayable on his day but he wasn’t consistent enough at United, much to the frustration of supporters.

It was the right decision to let him go but the same cannot be said of Javier Hernandez, who has flourished this term since leaving United for Bayer Leverkusen. United could have used Adnan Januzaj, too, at various points over the course of the campaign. Instead, he is spending this season on loan at Borussia Dortmund.
