They say East or West, home is the best. Is this former Manchester United Winger having interest in his former team? Former Manchester United winger Nani thinks his old club are still very much a work in progress under his compatriot Jose Mourinho.
United continued their recent resurgence as they came from a goal down to stun Juventus with two late strikes in a 2-1 champions league win in Turin on Wednesday night.
After a difficult start to the season, United have notched three wins from their last four league games, and are now just four points off a place in the top four.
And Nani, who won eight major trophies during an eight-year stay at Old Trafford, believes this United team are still some way off their best.
“I hope they keep up the good results and that United have a good future,” the Portugal international said.
“It’s different times, a different coach and a different culture I think. Different players, a different mentality, and you can see the attitude is not the same.
“Before [when I was at the club], sometimes we didn’t play good football but at the end, we showed that we could do things that other teams couldn’t. The last 15 minutes [of games in those days] was just Man Utd. It was attack, attack, attack.
“But they still have great players they still have time to work on it. They have a great manager so I hope in the future they will get back to their best.”
Manchester united are scheduled to face off Manchester City Etihad on Sunday 11, and thereafter face off Crystal palace on November 24, 2018.
It is now the time for Mourinho to prove what the former Manchester United star is claiming. Will he really make it with the fact that he is playing Man City over the weekend from away?
