Manchester United might not be in the Champions League but it hasn’t stopped one of their players named in the latest Champions League Team of the Week.
After his performance against Maribor, Nani was named in the official Team of the Week.
The Portuguese winger scored for Sporting Lisbon and was a constant thorn in Maribor’s side with his quick feet, direct dribbling and dangerous shots.
Nani has gone from strength to strength on loan at Sporting this season and his inclusion in the latest Champions League Team of the Week is testament to that.
Nani’s form has certainly been impressive but there is no guarantee it will earn him another chance at United.
Much has been reported about Nani’s future after this season long at Sporting and at this stage it is all conjecture, with Nani refusing to rule out either an exit or a return and Louis van Gaal remaining tight lipped.
However, if Nani can maintain this sort of form for the full season, then he’ll certainly make Van Gaal think before making a decision.
