Nani is no longer the first choice of coach Alex Ferguson. Not only that, the relationship between this player and the team is having certain cracks around after the problems in the contract extension.
Therefore, Nani’s appearance in the starting line-up in the classic match against Real Madrid surprised many people (even, even the number 17 player himself).
The Portuguese midfielder is eager to shine in this decisive match. Nani’s efforts are recognized, it was he who launched an uncomfortable cross for Sergio Ramos to kick his own goal.
However, fate was ironic with the Portuguese player, in a game of ball, this player kicked Arbeloa’s body, causing him to be sent off. It was this unjust red card that created a real shock for Nani.
According to a source close to him, the midfielder “cried like rain” in the MU dressing room, after that, he called back to Portugal, met his longtime mentor to “complain himself and take responsibility”. The source said: “Nani was really panicking. He called back to Portugal to ‘blame himself’ and ask people what he did wrong.”
It was Nani’s unjust red card that opened the turning point of this life-and-death confrontation. Real Madrid made good use of the advantage over people to win. However, they are not happy because of this “gift from heaven”.
After the match, coach Mourinho admitted that his team did not deserve to win. Meanwhile, C.Ronaldo shared his sad feeling: “When the war ended, I went to the MU dressing room to meet the players, the coach, the President and the Glazer family. I also feel a little sad when I see their faces.”
Yesterday, Real Madrid left Manchester but no one could see the joy on their faces.
