Nani surprised at impact

29 Oct 2007 - 16:37:14

Manchester United winger Nani has revealed his surprise at making an instant impact on the first team.

The 20-year-old wideman expected to be a peripheral figure during his first season at Old Trafford following his summer arrival from Sporting Lisbon.

But the Portugal Under-21 international, who opened the scoring in Saturday's 4-1 rout of Middlesbrough with his second goal for the Red Devils, has featured in all but two of United's games this season.

"I must confess, I was never expecting to be in the first team so soon," he admitted.

"I was well aware of the quality of my team-mates and I knew I would have to work very hard to break into the first XI.

"But things have happened very quickly for me and I was lucky enough to get a chance to show the manager what I can do.

"English football is definitely different. The tempo is much higher and it is a quick-thinking game.

"But I actually think that works in my favour because that is how I like to play. Coming over here was the best thing for me."
