Nani is going back to Sporting Lisbon and a mean kid might be to blame

At least a bird didn’t crap in his mouth on his way out.

IT HASN’T BEEN a good couple of days for Manchester United wingers. First, a bird defecated into Ashley Young’s mouth. Then, after a mediocre performance, this cheeky young Mancunian expertly eviscerated Nani with this great line.

Poor Nani obviously marched straight into Ed Woodward and demanded a move back to the safe confines of Lisbon. Well, maybe that isn’t exactly how it happened, but regardless, the winger has joined his old club on loan for the remainder of the season.

Given Nani featured at the weekend, you would think that Louis Van Gaal must have a replacement in mind if he is letting the winger leave.

United fans have fallen out of love with Nani in the last while but here is a reminder that his time at Old Trafford has featured a lot of memorable moments.
