Nani's only looking ahead

12 March 2010 09:11
Manchester United winger Nani aims to make up for his Carling Cup final disappointment with a Premier League and European Cup double. The 23-yera-old's red card at Aston Villa last month cost him a Wembley appearance against Martin O'Neill's side as he completed a three-match suspension. But concerns that his sending off could have meant a frustrating time waiting for his chance again eased with an immediate United senior return at Wolves last Saturday. On Wednesday he was instrumental in the Reds' 4-0 Euro triumph against AC Milan. His excellent cross for Wayne Rooney's second goal ensured United's passage to the last eight. This Sunday against Fulham he will look to revive the consistent form that preceded his red card. "It could be a fantastic season for me and I am working hard for that," said Nani. "Villa was a big disappointment for me. I was a bit down after that. But I am working hard again and I hope I can get more experience every game and help the team like I did. "I want to get my form back quickly and consistently. That is the most important thing for me at the moment. "I know I did a strong tackle at Villa but I saw the ball and I was only going for that but the referee sent me off. "It was a setback because I was playing well at the time and was happy with my form. "I did worry that it would take a while for me to get back but it hasn't been too bad. "I don't think about Villa anymore. It is in the past for me. I just have to concentrate on what is ahead. "There are many things we are still going for that would make up for me missing the Carling Cup final at Wembley." Would you play Nani on Sunday? Have your say.
